Two teens died in a fiery crash in Milton Sunday afternoon.

The single-vehicle collision occurred just after 2:30 p.m., when a black Nissan 350z travelling west on James Snow Parkway left the roadway and struck a streetlight pole.

The vehicle, according to police, caught fire. Responding officers worked to extinguish the blaze before the Milton fire department arrived on the scene, located east of Esquesing Line. Several officers were treated for smoke inhalation.

The 17-year-old driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead.

Good Samaritans passing by the area stopped to assist the passenger, removing the 17-year-old from the vehicle. The passenger was airlifted to a Hamilton trauma centre, where he succumbed to his injuries.

James Snow Parkway was closed for approximately five hours to allow police to probe the cause of the crash.

The Halton Regional Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating. Witnesses have provided statements to police, however, officers are appealing to others with information to come forward.

In a release, police said, "Any witnesses to the collision or anyone who may have seen the vehicle prior to the collision are asked to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit at (905) 825-4747 ext. 5065."
