Deadly six-vehicle crash on Highway 400 sparked by road rage incident


One person was killed in a six-vehicle crash on Highway 400 in Innisfil Friday evening.

Police say a road rage incident between two vehicles in the southbound lanes of Highway 400 near Highway 89 resulted in the initial crash at around 5:30 p.m.

One of the vehicles crossed the centre median, rolled over and was struck by a pick-up truck in the northbound lanes. 

Police say the driver of that vehicle, a 21-year-old from Mississauga, was pronounced dead on scene. The driver of the pick-up truck was taken to hospital with minor injuries. 

The highway was closed between Highway 89 and County Road 88 in Cookstown. All lanes were reopened at around 4 a.m. Saturday. 

No charges have been laid at this point, but an investigation is ongoing. 

Investigators are appealing for anyone with footage of the incident to contact police.
