CORNWALL – Drivers heading east on Highway 401 through Cornwall had to take a detour overnight after a crash.

SD&G OPP Const. Serge Duguay told Cornwall Newswatch a tractor-trailer rear-ended another transport on the section of highway between the Brookdale Avenue and McConnell Avenue interchanges around 11:30 p.m. Monday.

Duguay says there was possibly a third vehicle involved but it couldn’t be confirmed.

There were no serious injuries.

The section of highway was back open around 2:30 a.m. this morning.
