Five people have been injured in a serious multi-vehicle crash in Burlington. 

At about 6:30 p.m., OPP Const Graham Williamson says police were investigating a minot accident on the WB 403 just west of Waterdown Rd. 

They were stopped on the side of the highway when a black Escalade struck the police vehicle, the two vehicles that were involved in the initial crash, a witness vehicle, two tow trucks, and two other vehicles. 

Williamson says that two people, a man and woman, are now in life-threatening condition. Two children also have injuries that are not serious. 

One particular vehicle, an orange Yaris, was mangled in the crash. 

"It is like an absolute write-off," Williamson says. "The damage is catastrophic to the vehicle."

He adds that it looks like the Escalade drove "right over top" a tow truck that was also seriously damaged. 

No charges have been laid at this point as police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
