100 crashes ontario

Over 100 crashes were reported as the snow started to fall yesterday in Ontario.

Environment Canada forecasted the first major blast of snow for some parts of Ontario starting yesterday and into today (Nov. 28).

Some regions were expecting blizzard-like conditions and up to 35 centimetres of snow.

But even before the bulk of the snow started to fall, OPP in the western region of Ontario were called to multiple crashes.

OPP in western Ontario responded to over 100 crashes between 1 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday (Nov. 27), OPP Acting Sergeant Ed Sanchuk said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

“Just a reminder, please slow down, drive according to the road and weather conditions,” said Sanchuk.

The western area of the province was still expecting another 10 to 15 centimetres of snow overnight, Sanchuk said.

He asked drivers to make sure to completely clear off their vehicles in the morning. He also suggested getting a full tank of gas and filling your windshield fluid.
