Two men, one from Brampton and another from Mississauga, have died following a horrific crash on the 407.

Police say the 41-year-old Brampton man was operating the fuel truck and the 49-year-old Mississauga man was driving a passenger vehicle.

“Sadly, two lives were claimed in this collision,” OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said in a video posted to Twitter on the evening of the crash.

The crash occurred in Vaughan on the eastbound 407 between Dufferin and Keele on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

“The fiery crash occurred around 5:00 this afternoon,” said Schmidt.

In a video, Schmidt said it appears that a vehicle crossed over from the westbound lanes into the eastbound ones.

“The collision is massive,” he says.

The crash prompted an enormous fire and a major backup.  

The affected portion of the highway was closed for a number of hours following the crash.
