A man is dead after he was found lying on the QEW at King Road in Burlington Sunday night.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said police believe the man fell from the overpass but foul play is “not suspected.”

Schmidt said police responded to reports of a man “lying on the highway” on the eastbound lanes of Hwy 403 at King just after 11 p.m. “Officers responded, along with EMS, and found the man without vital signs.”

Resuscitation efforts were performed but the man was pronounced dead at the scene, and there was no indication of foul play or a collision with a vehicle, he added.

The highway was closed during the investigation with all lanes re-opened at 5 a.m.
