Police said the 44-year-old driver of the silver Toyota and the 36-year-old passenger were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. Their conditions have since been upgraded to stable. The drivers of the three other vehicles suffered minor injuries.

The son of one of the drivers involved in the crash told Global News at the scene that his father is a driving instructor.

“He saw the Lamborghini coming towards him, and my father swerved in enough time for the Lamborghini not to hit him head on,” Azhar Malik said.
