He was in the Burlington area heading towards Toronto.
A driver from Niagara Falls has died after a tragic incident on the Queen Elizabeth Way on Tuesday night.
According to the Ontario Provincial Police, the 46-year-old man was driving towards Toronto near Nikola Tesla Boulevard in the Burlington area on the QEW when "an excavator in a construction zone struck an overhead road sign causing it to collapse and fall onto the roadway," striking his vehicle.
According to reports by CP24, the passenger compartment of the vehicle was entirely crushed, killing the driver instantly.
The QEW remains closed for removal, cleanup, and ongoing investigation — all lanes should be open by around 9 a.m. on Tuesday, say OPP.
Police say that they will provide more updates about the incident as they become available.
