The OPP say a 4 year old girl was one of the 4 people killed in a horrific multi vehicle crash on Highway 400 Friday night.
OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the child was one of three people inside a vehicle involved in the crash that happened around 9:45 p.m. on the southbound lanes of Highway 400 just south of Finch Avenue.
Schmidt says the 2 other women in the vehicle in which the child died were alos killed and they were all from the same family.
Schmidt said “I’ve never seen a collision of this magnitude and that fact the fire consumed three of the vehicles, the trailer and two more cars.”
A fourth person in a separate vehicle also died in the crash. Their gender and identity have not been released.
Police have spoken to all the family members of the deceased but they are yet to be identified.
Schmidt says investigators are “focusing on the action of one of the commercial vehicles to see whether or not the driver didn’t stop or slow down in time.”
The 11 vehicle crash stopped traffic for several hours in both directions Friday evening and Saturday morning.
