Shortly after 3:30PM emergency services were called to HWY 401 westbound, west of CR-28 for a two vehicle MVC. A vehicle entering the highway at CR-28 was rear-ended by a transport truck heading westbound on the highway.
Port Hope Fire Department, Northumberland County OPP and Northumberland Paramedics responded to the call for service. Lane three of the highway was closed for approximately one hour as emergency services worked to investigate the collision.
One person has been taken to hospital to be treated for what appear to be minor injuries sustained in the collision.
At this time we have no word on any charges, however all lanes are expected to reopen shortly.
