Collisions and Diesel Spill Causing Highway Delays in Mississauga


Residents should be aware of some problems taking place this morning on Highway 401 in Mississauga.

Sgt. Kerry Schmidt of the OPP reported around 11:15 a.m. that a few transport and tow trucks were involved in separate collisions on the highway.

Delays are affecting both directions primarily on the westbound side, just west of Mavis.

In addition, a diesel spill on the highway is also causing traffic, Schmidt reports.

Officers are on scene working to clear traffic and reopen lanes.

If possible, residents may want to avoid taking the highway for now.
