One person is dead and another three people suffered life-threatening injuries after a three-vehicle crash just outside the northwest corner of London.

Emergency crews responded to the intersection of Vanneck Road and Egremont Drive around 1:05 p.m. on November 26th, 2016.

The intersection is governed by traffic lights. After the initial collision, the Dodge then collided with a Honda car, which was travelling westbound on Egremont Drive.

The driver of the Honda is deceased. The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of the family.

The driver of the Dodge had to be extricated from the vehicle and was transported to hospital by ambulance with life-threatening injuries. Two passengers in the Dodge also suffered life threatening injuries, and were taken to hospital by ambulance.

The three occupants of the pickup truck did not require treatment in hospital.
