Police said six people were inside the vehicle at the time of the collision.

Investigators said an 18-year-old woman from Brampton was pronounced dead on scene, and an 18-year-old Brampton man was taken to hospital in critical condition.

Two 19-year-old women were also taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while another 18-year-old man was treated for minor injuries.

Police said the driver was uninjured in the crash.
