A woman believed to be in her 30s was rushed to hospital in life-threatening condition after a crash in Toronto early Saturday.

The collision between two vehicles at Davenport Road and Hazelton Avenue left two other people injured. 

A man also believed to be in his 30s was taken to hospital, while the third injured person was treated at the scene.

Emergency crews were called to the area at about 6:25 a.m.

Police said one of the vehicles rolled over. 

CBC Toronto confirmed the driver of one of the vehicles works for the ride-sharing platform Lyft, however they were not on-duty at the time. 

"We are deeply saddened by the news of this tragic accident and resulting loss of life," an emailed statement from a Lyft spokesperson read.

"While the accident did not occur on our platform, we have reached out to the driver to extend our support and stand ready to assist law enforcement with their investigation."

Toronto police's major collision bureau has taken over the investigation. Davenport Road was closed from Avenue Road to Belmont Street as officers reconstructed the crash, but it has since reopened to traffic.
