Saved by the barrier



No one was injured on Sunday afternoon after a tractor trailer hit the median barrier on Highway 401 in Chatham-Kent.

OPP say the mishap took place about 1:20 p.m., as the truck suffered a blowout while westbound on the 401 near Mull Road, resulting in it striking the cable barrier.

The driver was able to bring the vehicle to a stop in the centre median, police say, while the cable barrier assisted in preventing the vehicle from entering the eastbound lane.

The cable barrier was compromised but has been repaired, police say.

There will not be any charges laid in this matter.
