Ontario Provincial Police say a person is dead after a two-vehicle crash on the Queen Elizabeth Way in Beamsville.
An OPP spokesperson said emergency crews were called to the Niagara-bound lanes of the QEW near Ontario Street at around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday after a fuel tanker truck and a car collided.
The occupant of the car died at the scene.
Niagara Regional Police said officers determined that the vehicle left South Service Road and crashed into the fuel tanker truck.
At the time of the crash, a storm system was moving through the region. It’s not clear if weather conditions were a factor in the collision.
Officers shut down all Niagara-bound lanes of traffic at Ontario Street as investigators gathered evidence.
