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.”

Schmidt says an Ornge air ambulance was dispatched to the scene.

The southbound Mavis Road lanes were restricted and the westbound 401 approaching Mavis Road was affected.

All westbound lanes have since reopened.

Residents might want to find an alternate route.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
