Woman se­ri­ously hurt in QEW crash

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A 37-year-old Hamil­ton woman is in hospi­tal in life-threat­en­ing con­di­tion after a two-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion on the west­bound QEW near Brant Street Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The crash — be­tween a Toy­ota Corolla and a com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle — took place around 2 p.m., OPP spokesper­son Sgt. Kerry Sch­midt said on Twit­ter.

“Right now it ap­pears that this cube van may have ac­tu­ally been dis­abled or slow­ing down be­cause of an is­sue on the high­way and com­ing to rest … be­tween the 403 and QEW,” right be­fore the crash hap­pened, Sch­midt said.

The west­bound lanes of the QEW were closed at Guelph Line, which is where traf­fic was be­ing di­verted off the high­way.

The high­way was ex­pected to re­open around 6:30 p.m.

The woman was trapped in her ve­hi­cle, Sch­midt said.

She was go­ing to be air­lifted to hospi­tal but ended up be­ing trans­ported by ground am­bu­lance, he added.

Wit­nesses are asked to con­tact the Burling­ton OPP de­tach­ment at 905 681-2511.
