This Stretch of road starting from Markham Rd and Steeles Ave E to the point where it meets Taunton needs a 4 way lane. Everyday commute is so tough due to single lane which takes extra 30 minutes of time and fuel .The crash site happened where there is no dedicated left or right turn signal at all. Hope the Markham city gives some fund to improve the roads there . I pray for speedy recovery for all those who have been injured.

Three other people, all men in their 50s, were transported to hospital with serious injuries, according to Toronto police Sgt. Brett Moore.
