Two people have died and two others are injured after a crash on the QEW near Burlington this morning that has closed a stretch of the highway in both directions.

At 5:53 a.m., Burlington OPP say, officers were called to a crash involving three vehicles on the QEW at Brant Street.

Const. Kevin Westhead says two female occupants of one of the vehicles were pronounced dead on scene. They appeared to be the only ones in the vehicle, Westhead says, and investigators believe one was ejected.

Police have closed the Toronto-bound Brant Street ramp, as well as the westbound lanes, Westhead says. The eastbound QEW is also closed from Highway 403. 

Westhead estimates they will be closed for six to eight hours.
