All eastbound express lanes on Highway 401 approaching Yonge Street are closed after a transport truck struck a woman Thursday afternoon, Ontario Provincial Police say.
All traffic is being directed onto the collector’s lanes before the Yonge Street exit. Westbound lanes are unaffected.
Toronto paramedics said a woman was taken to hospital in critical condition.
Police said they are trying to determine why the woman was in a live lane of traffic on the highway. The transport truck driver remained on the scene.
Police said the lanes will remain closed for at least another couple of hours.
