Police are investigating after an incident involving a pedestrian closed part of the eastbound 401 in Mississauga.
Shortly before 3:15 p.m., police said that Peel police and Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers were in the Mavis and 401 area working with a “person in distress.”
Right before 3:00 p.m., OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said that the eastbound 401 was being shut down between Mavis Rd. and Hurontario St.
“This is due to an ongoing police investigation involving a pedestrian on the highway that has been struck,” Schmidt said in a video posted to Twitter. “The highway will be shut down.”
