A woman and a man have both been seriously injured following a single-vehicle rollover in Scarborough.

The collision happened around 5:30 a.m. Sunday in the eastbound collector lanes of Highway 401, east of Morningside Avenue.

According Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt, the driver struck a wall. The vehicle then flipped over and landed in a ditch.
