A truck rollover on the QEW has caused chaos along the Mississauga stretch of the highway this afternoon.

The dump truck struck a sound barrier wall, knocking it down, around 2 p.m. on Thursday (June 23), OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said.

“We currently have only one lane getting by on the Fort Erie bound side of the QEW,” Schmidt said around 5 p.m.

The crash was between Cawthra Rd. and Hurontario in the westbound lanes of the QEW. Traffic was reduced to one lane west of Cawthra.

The North Service Rd. was also shut down because the truck crashed into the sound barrier.

The contents of the truck spilled out on the highway shoulder.

Clean up crews were on scene and the Ontario Provincial is expected to provide updates later today.
