A massive collision involving up to seven vehicles has left one person with serious injuries. 

According to OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt, it appears that one vehicle crashed through the westbound QEW’s sound wall off of Dixie Road and was struck by a transport truck upon entering the highway. After that initial collision, five more vehicles became involved. 

All lanes on the westbound QEW have been completely shut down at Dixie Road. Lanes on the eastbound side are getting through. 

One person has been transported to hospital with serious injuries. 

All westbound lanes will remain closed for most of the morning.

The vehicle that came through appears to be a van.
