Major Collision Closes Part of QEW

in

If you plan on driving west on the QEW, you might want to pick an alternate route.

The OPP reports that the Fort Erie-bound QEW is closed at the 427, just east of Dixie Road. Westbound Gardiner traffic is being diverted off at the 427/Brown's Line.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the closure is due to clean up following a collision that occurred earlier this morning. During the crash, a tanker truck lost a saddle tank of diesel and the subsequent spill made the highway "very slick."

Four vehicles were involved.

No injuries have been reported.
