The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) says a third person has died after a single-vehicle crash on Highway 401 West near Cornwall.
Officers arrived on the scene, between Boundary Road and McConnell Avenue, on Thursday, May 13, to find a man and woman, ages 60 and 66, dead. A 46-year-old Brampton man was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, but police say Moniruzzaman Mohammed has since succumbed to those injuries.
Police say the man and woman pronounced dead at the scene were visiting from Bangladesh. Their identities are yet to be confirmed pending notification to family.
The OPP says its initial investigation has indicated that shortly before 4:30 p.m., the vehicle with three people inside left the westbound lanes of the highway, hit the ditch and then struck a culvert. The vehicle then became engulfed in flames.
The crash is still under investigation.
