One woman and two children, ages 2 and 4, were injured in the collision, which involved a small SUV and a transport truck.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the four-year-old girl was ejected from the SUV and the other two occupants needed to be extricated after becoming trapped inside the vehicle, which ended up on its roof.

The four-year-old was transported to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries. The two-year-old and the woman, who sustained only minor injuries, were also taken to hospital for treatment.

Schmidt says he hoped that the eastbound lanes would be reopened within a few hours. At 5:39 p.m., he posted an update saying that the eastbound lanes would be opened in the coming minutes.

Schmidt said car seats were present inside the SUV but police will be investigating to see whether they were properly secured.

The eastbound lanes of the highway have been closed at Winston Churchill Boulevard for the collision reconstruction.
