INGLESIDE – A collision involving a tractor trailer closed the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 near Ingleside Thursday morning.

A witness tells Cornwall Newswatch the crash involved a tractor trailer and a car and the injuries appeared to be serious.

The eastbound lanes were closed at Dickenson Drive but have since reopened (as of 10:10 a.m.). Westbound traffic was unaffected.

It’s the third occurrence of crashes closing sections of the MacDonald-Cartier Freeway in Eastern Ontario in as many days.

A crash Wednesday in the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 near Boundary Road closed that section of road for the morning before it opened after the lunch hour.
