Three people are in hospital and a driver has been arrested after a vehicle crashed on the Gardiner Expressway around 3 a.m. Saturday morning.

Toronto police reported the collision Sunday morning near Jameson Avenue.

Police originally said four people were in the vehicle when it crashed and three were taken to hospital. Later on Saturday, officers clarified that a 22-year-old passenger in the vehicle was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The driver, also 22, faces several charges, including impaired driving, according to police.

They were treated by medics and then released into police custody, investigators said.

Part of the Gardiner Expressway near Jameson Avenue closed but reopened Saturday morning; another section of the Expressway near Kipling Avenue was also closed after bales of hay fell off a truck.
