A stretch of Highway 401 eastbound was closed Wednesday morning after a fatal crash. Paramedics have confirmed at least two people are dead.

Emergency crews were called the scene just east of the Don Valley Parkway shortly after 4 a.m. and found a vehicle wrapped around a metal beam supporting an overhead traffic sign, Toronto paramedics said. It's not clear if the victims are male or female at this point. :confused1: Is it just me or do all four tires look bald?

You can't really tell from that distance. Could just be lock up if they hit the brakes. Doesn't look like they even slowed though. Wonder how fast they were going.

I enjoy driving spiritedly and hate slow people in the left lane but ultimately there is no accident worthy of trying to save a few minutes. Have to be careful out there.

What kind of car was that even?

It's been a brutal couple weeks all over the province. Yesterday Hwy 11 was closed in more places than I could keep track of. Even this, too, unfortunately -- hopefully nobody was injured:

Looks like blood on the post, as visible in the news video: https://globalnews.ca/news/3949792/victims-single-vehicle-crash-hwy-401/

Victims killed in 'horrific' Highway 401 crash had run-ins with law

BBHX7vx.jpg


Two people killed in Wednesday's fatal crash on Highway 401 in Scarborough, Ont., had faced a number of charges, police sources and court documents confirm.

Dwane Koltchigin, 45, of Brampton, Ont., who police say was driving the vehicle, faced sex offences five years ago when he reportedly failed to disclose to women that he was HIV positive. He was said to go by various names, including Tre and Tre Cold, and according to court contacts, his charges appear to have been withdrawn in 2013.

His passenger, 31-year-old Carla Whyte of Oshawa, Ont., was charged with several offences in a human trafficking case two years ago where a woman was forced into the sex trade. Her charges included assault with a weapon, kidnapping and armed robbery.

CBC Toronto has learned that Whyte had a court appearance scheduled for Jan. 24.

Court records also show Koltchigin had a criminal past in Florida. According to Palm Beach County records, he was charged with two counts of dealing in stolen property in 1999. He pled guilty in 2000 and was sentenced to 18 months of probation. It's unclear when he left Florida for Canada.

Yes, it's amazing how they caught the post exactly in the middle, and on the SUV's roof.

That part of the 401 is also subject to highly supernatural phenomena, as I experienced a couple times on my way through Scarborough while travelling eastbound as well. :eek::confused1::confused::what::hmm: The severe poltergeist activity my car sustained was very traumatic indeed.

What phenomena?

The only thing I've ever had happen to me right at the warden exit was this asshole. This when he comes to a complete stop, look at the right and you'll see lights on the sound barrier. Car almost rear ended me cause he slammed his breaks and ended up on the shoulder, same for the car behind that guy.

(Call me a jerk all you want for high beaming the guy. I was going 100km/hr, he was doing 60 when he merged, hence the high beams and the never ending horn you couldn't hear over the stereo.

(Note: I miss the XenonDepot 6000K kit, I will get another one in the future)

What phenomena?
Thanks for the video. I'm glad you asked... While driving eastbound on the 401 through Scarborough area back in summer of 1991 during a warm sunny afternoon, a very powerful phenomena suddenly manifested itself... What sounded like a loud sonic boom shook my car so violently that I immediately looked to my left rear to see if the older brown station wagon I had spotted in the fast lane had rammed into my car. He hadn't, and was then casually overtaking me on the left lane, windows open, his long hair flowing in the wind, not a care in the world. The incredibly deafening hits continued in 5 consecutive impacts, about 1 second apart, and followed by one final double punch. It sounded like a very loud and sharp "POK!" sound.

"POK!... POK!... POK!... POK!... POK!... POPOK!"

Every hit was felt sharply throughout the car and reverberated through the steering column as well. It was as though a 100 foot giant was wacking the top of the car with a 40 foot beam... I immediately pulled over to check the car. Amazingly, the roof was not caved in and everything looked fine, as all traffic kept driving by as though nothing had happened. I then started driving again, but with my ears hurting and buzzing from the booms. It took over an hour before my hearing started recovering, and to start calming down and finally be brave enough to go over 100 km/hr (62 mph) again.


There was also one other scary poltergeist type experience I had late at night about a year later while driving in the same area on the 401, also eastbound... The antenna on front right fender started swinging sideways. I first noticed this happening although there was no wind outside or anything to cause it. Chills ran up my spine as the antenna's side to side swinging intensified without any logical reason. I noticed an older white Ford Escort a couple lanes to my right. His antenna had a perfectly normal slight rear sway. I was hoping to catch his attention as I could see the driver. Now the antenna was nearly hitting my hood at every swing to the left!

It was crazy scary! It finally subsided and quickly reverted to a normal slight rear sway at it should. This lasted about 3 minutes.
