OPP have identified the victim as Ngoc Anh Phan.
The car she was driving veered into a concrete wall on the right side of the highway, bounced back into traffic and was struck by a delivery truck on the driver’s side around 11 p.m. Tuesday.
Phan was travelling toward Toronto with her younger sister, who remains in hospital with serious injuries.
The delivery truck driver wasn’t hurt.
Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said he doesn’t know what caused Phan to lose control of the car, but noted the snow-covered roads were slippery Tuesday evening.
“There were crashes all over the place.”
Schmidt said there’s no indication that speeding caused the fatal collision.
But it wouldn’t take much — even 70 or 80 kilometres per hour — to cause the damage.
“It was just a truck and a car going broadside.”
The OPP asks that anyone who witnessed the collision to contact the Burlington detachment at 905-681-2511.
The QEW was closed for several hours for the collision-reconstruction investigation. It reopened in time for rush hour.
