A 22 year-old man from Markham has been killed after a collision on the westbound 401 Monday morning that shut down the WB collector lanes at Leslie.

The crash happened just before 5 a.m. in the collector lanes near Bayview and began when a BMW hit a taxi. The cab spun out, striking a black Mercedes.

The Mercedes, driven by the 22 year-old Markham man, lost control and slammed into a concrete guardrail.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and a woman in the vehicle was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The names of the victims have not been released.
