Greyhound Bus catches fire on the QEW

A Greyhound Bus was engulfed in flames early Sunday morning on a Mississauga stretch of the Queen Elizabeth Way.

Shortly after midnight, the Ontario Provincial Police and Mississauga Fire responded to the call for a vehicle fire near Cawthra Rd. All westbound lanes on the QEW were closed in the area, but have since reopened.

23 passengers were on board the bus at the time. No one was injured, according to OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt.

A three-vehicle collision later occurred on the westbound lanes approaching Cawthra Rd., before the scene of the fire, shortly before 2 a.m, OPP said.
