One man is dead, and another is in critical condition after a three-car crash early Saturday morning.

It happened around 1:30 a.m. when a Chevy Cavalier and Dodge Avenger were traveling westbound on 167 avenue.

It was near the intersection of 59A Street where the two lanes merge into one that the Avenger allegedly struck the Cavalier from behind, sending it spinning into the eastbound lane. 

The Cavalier then collided with a Mitsubishi Lancer, which caused the male passenger riding in the Caviler to be thrown from the vehicle. 

The Cavalier then struck the Avenger a second time. 

The man thrown from the Cavalier was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver remains in critical condition.

The driver of the Avenger sustained minor injuries, while the driver and passenger of the Lancer both were admitted to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
