HAPPENING NOW: TWO LANES CLOSED ON THE EASTBOUND 401 FOLLOWING AN MVC

The 401 is moving slow in the eastbound direction following a three vehicle MVC in Port Hope.

It was around 9:15PM this evening that emergency services were called to the 401 eastbound for a three vehicle MVC near Toronto Rd.

The driver of a Volkswagen sedan is lucky to walk away from the incident without injury following this MVC.

A tractor trailer was parked half way on the shoulder and in the live lane. The Volkswagen sedan struck the back of the tractor trailer, ripping off the side of the car.

The driver of the tractor trailer was outside of the vehicle at the time of the collision, and smears sent to hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Two right lanes will remain closed while the Northumberland OPP investigate the collision, and await a heavy tow truck to remove the involved truck.
