Three people were taken to hospital Friday after a single-vehicle crash on Highway 403

A pregnant woman and a child have sustained critical injuries in a crash that occurred on the eastbound 403 in Mississauga.

Provincial police said the auto was travelling eastbound when it veered off the highway exit to Mavis Road around noon on Friday and struck a concrete pillar.

"They were trapped in the vehicle for some time until firefighters were able to extricate them", Schmidt told CP24.

The man driving the vehicle was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The child was taken to Sick Kids Hospital, also via an emergency run.

The off-ramp to Mavis Road was closed to traffic during the police investigation.

Three people were in the auto at the time - two adults, including the pregnant woman, and the child.

OPP's reconstruction and crime unit officers responded to the scene to investigate the circumstances of the collision.
