Woman killed in single-vehicle crash on Gardiner Expressway


A 25-year-old woman was killed following a single-vehicle crash on the eastbound lanes of the Gardiner Expressway early Monday morning.

Toronto police said the incident happened around 3 a.m. east of Parkside Drive when a car collided into a dividing wall, then a guardrail before striking a cement barrier in front of a Toronto Water building.

The occupant of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.

There’s no word yet on what led to the crash but police say speed may have been a factor.

“The vehicle is virtually unrecognizable and we are seeking any witnesses and anyone that was in the area around 3 o’clock this morning,” Const. Clint Stibbe said.

The eastbound lanes of the Gardiner Expressway were closed for several hours between Parklawn Road and Jameson Avenue for the police investigation but reopened at 8:30 a.m.
