Emergency crews at the scene where a woman's body was found on the westbound express lanes of Highway 401 at Brimley Road, in Toronto, Thursday, March 1, 2018.

"At this point a female pedestrian was observed prior to this collision, in the area", OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said.

The driver of the truck remained on the scene.

Paramedics say the woman, a 49-year-old from Scarborough, was pronounced dead at the scene at about 4:15 a.m.

Officers have spoken to several witnesses and are gathering surveillance camera footage, Schmidt said. The highway reopened around 9 a.m. Police say they do not believe foul play is involved. It isn't clear why the woman was on the highway, Schmidt said.

The OPP has closed all westbound Hwy.
