A woman is dead after falling in between the express and collectors lane of Highway 401 onto a golf course just west of Yonge St., Toronto Paramedics confirm.

Around 10 p.m. emergency crews arrived to the Don Valley Golf course and found the woman who had fallen almost 45 metres from the highway, paramedics said.

Paramedics also told the Star that she was a passenger on a tow truck.

One westbound express lane is closed on the highway, and two right lanes blocked in collectors.
