One man is dead and the 401 east remains closed following a fiery crash last night.

The Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry OPP says that 3 tractor trailers collided in the eastbound lanes near Moulinette Road and one of the vehicles became engulfed in flames. The OPP says the driver of that truck was pronounced dead at the scene and the two other drivers were not injured.

The OPP’s traffic collision investigators are continuing their investigation and an Emergency Detour Route is in place as the 401 East is closed between Brookdale Avenue and Dickinson Drive.
