A 37-year-old Burlington man has been pronounced dead in hospital following a two-vehicle crash on the Niagara-bound Q.E.W.
The victim was operating a motorcycle which collided with a commercial van near Woodward Avenue on Friday afternoon.
OPP Sergeant Kerry Schmidt notes that the fatal crash has closed the Niagara-bound lanes, approaching the Burlington Skyway.
Traffic is being forced off the highway onto Eastport Drive and under the skyway.
Schmidt suggests the scene could be cleared by 6 o’clock.
