UPDATE: One driver dead after three vehicle crash on 401

A second major accident in less than 24 hours has claimed the life of a driver on the 401.

It happened just after 1pm near Prescott.

OPP say the crash involved two transport trucks and a tanker.

That closed the 401 in both directions between Edward Street in Prescott and Maitland Road for a number of hours.

The eastbound lanes have since reopened after spilled fuel from the tanker was cleaned up.

No other information on injuries is available at this time.
