A rollover crash involving a semi-truck was caught on film this week leading to charges against a Brampton trucker.

On Monday afternoon, the OPP Highway Safety Patrol responded to a rollover collision on Highway 401 at James Snow Parkway.

Two separate dashcam videos of the crash show a tractor trailer exiting onto the eastbound 401 before tipping over onto its side and sliding into oncoming traffic.

A car and another semi-truck narrowly avoid the overturned truck while another semi crashes into the rear of the trailer.

Police said the 46-year-old Brampton truck driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries, and the man has now been charged with careless driving.

No one else was injured in the crash, including the driver of the truck who captured the crash on his dashcam. Police said the other driver “was shaken up but not hurt.”

“This is how fast you can go from a good day to a mess,” police said on Twitter.

Eastbound traffic on the 401 was limited to one lane and the southbound ramp from James Snow Parkway was closed as crews worked to clear the crash scene.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the truck was loaded at the time of the crash none of the cargo were dangerous goods.

Police have not released the driver’s name.
