Multi-Vehicle Hwy. 401 Crash Snarling Traffic in Mississauga

Published April 19, 2018 at 12:46 pm


A multi-vehicle crash – which trapped at least one person – is causing major delays on Hwy. 401 in Mississauga and Milton on Thursday morning.

It involves “a couple of transport trucks, a couple of other passenger vehicles,” said OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt.

All eastbound lanes at Winston Churchill Blvd. are blocked as of 8:15 a.m.

A person was extricated by firefighters and treated by paramedics before being taken to hospital.

“Injuries are unknown at this point,” said Schmidt.

Drivers will be forced off the 401, Schmidt added.

His detour suggestions? 

“You can get off at Hwy. 407 before that, or get off at Trafalgar well before that and then take Steeles or Derry.”

Emergency crews remain on scene.

The reopening time is unknown.

Avoid the area.
