401 still closed


Chatham-Kent OPP officers are supporting fellow OPP officers from Elgin following a morning crash that closed Highway 401.

Police say one big rig jackknifed in the westbound lanes shortly before 9 a.m. near Furnival Road, and another commercial vehicle smacked into it.

No injuries are reported, police say, but diesel fuel did spill.

According to an OPP post on social media, the westbound lanes remain closed at this time, as emergency crews work to clear the area and clean up the spill.

No timeline on when the lanes will reopen, as weather conditions continue to fluctuate and are impacting the effort.
