Three passengers of a 1948 Chevrolet died Sunday afternoon right after crashing into a coach bus on Highway 407 in Brampton, Ontario, the OPP states.
It’s thought the Chevrolet was travelling in the reactionary lane on the westbound 407 when there was a problem with its right rear tire, Sgt. Vince Idzenga informed press reporters at the scene.
The driver lost focus and the automobile swerved into the highway’s left-inner lane.
“As an outcome of that, a coach bus, which was travelling westbound, T-boned the [Chevrolet],” Idzenga said.
Very soon, the Chevrolet burst into flames and rolled into a roadside ditch near Mississauga Rd. The vehicle was “consumed by fire,” Sgt. Kerry Schmidt added.
Two passersby pulled over and saved two people, both were males, Idzenga said, from the automobile. They weren’t able to pull the third person out.
Emergency teams came to the scene soon after 3 p.m.
“All three passengers sustained deadly injuries as an outcome of the effect,” Idzenga said.
The burned-out vehicle could be seen in the ditch as officers started an investigation. The bus stayed parked further down the roadway, near the highway’s concrete divider.
An ORNGE air ambulance was executed to the crash, however the firm later on informed the Star its services hadn’t been needed.
None of the victims have been officially determined by cops, Schmidt stated. The coroner’s workplace is helping with the investigation.
