Serious injury in morning rollover


The on and off ramps to the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 at Kent Bridge Road are closed this morning following a serious big-rig rollover.

Chatham-Kent OPP say the crash took place about 6 a.m., as a tractor trail apparently failed to negotiate the off ramp, left the roadway and rolled onto its left side.

The driver had to be airlifted to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. He was the only person in the truck at the time of the crash.

Police are still investigating, and the ramps remain closed until the truck and trailer can be removed from the scene.

Any person with information is being urged to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or the Chatham-Kent detachment at 519-352-1122.
