A 23-year-old man has died following a serious multi-vehicle collision in Toronto’s east end.
Emergency crews were called to the Lawrence Avenue East and McMillian Avenue area around 7 p.m. Sunday for a report of a collision.
Police said it appears an Audi was heading eastbound at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control of the vehicle and it headed into the westbound lanes and crashed into a Jeep.
The man who was pronounced dead at the scene was a passenger in the backseat of the Audi.
The driver of the Audi, who is also a 23-year-old man, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries. A third person, who had been sitting in the passenger seat, suffered only minor injuries.
