UPDATE: 401 Reopen Near Prescott After Major Crash
Ontario Provincial Police say two transport truck drivers were injured after a four-vehicle pileup on the 401 near Prescott Wednesday evening.
In a press release issued late Thursday morning, OPP say a transport truck carrying a load of steel rolls on a flatbed lost control and hit a rock bed at around 6:00 p.m. Wednesday. The steel load spilled onto the highway and hit another transport truck, which then crashed into two cars.
The driver of the first transport truck was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. The second transport truck driver was taken by ambulance to hospital with minor injuries. The drivers of the two cars were not hurt.
All EB lanes of the 401 between Maitland and Prescott were closed for more than 12 hours.
One lane reopened Thursday morning.
This bridge over White River AR is not designed for vehicles weighing more than 10 tons, but a bus like this one can weigh up to 35 tons! Interestingly, no less than 62 road signs warn drivers of this weight limit BEFORE reaching that point in the road! This driver is a total idiot.
This is outrageous, but ultimately, it's just sad. Very, very sad.
A woman tried to block a man from entering his own apartment building, she even followed him in the elevator to check on him! People recognized her from the video and she was fired from her job for this type of behaviour.
