Toronto police say a man was critically injured after losing control of his vehicle on the Don Valley Parkway early Saturday, resulting in a two-vehicle collision.

Police said officers received a call shortly after 2 a.m. for reports of a crash in the northbound lanes of the DVP near Spanbridge Road.

Investigators said a 65-year-old man “lost control” of his vehicle and crashed into a construction zone, but did not provide additional details as to what may have led to the crash.
