A driver is dead after a collision between a car and a transport truck on the eastbound QEW in Hamilton.

Ontario Provincial Police say the crash happened around 6 a.m. on Friday morning.

Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said in a social media post that investigators believe the truck was rear ended by a sedan during traffic congestion due to road maintenance forcing traffic into a left lane.

“This passenger vehicle, in the live lane as it approached, collided with the back corner of the transport truck’s trailer,” Schmidt said.
