Windsor Truck Driver Charged In Fiery Crash On The 401

A Windsor truck driver has been charged in a fiery crash on the 401 in Chatham-Kent.

The OPP were called to the crash near Communication Rd around 5:45pm Thursday after the driver of a westbound tractor trailer lost control, struck a north side cement barrier which caused it to bounce off and strike the centre barrier.

The centre barrier was pushed into the eastbound lanes and the trailer caught on fire.

The driver wasn't hurt.

57-year-old Khaled Husni is charged with careless driving.

The crash resulted in the westbound lanes at Kent Bridge Rd being closed for more than 12 hours.
