401 re-opens after truck falls apart, closes highway

A section of Highway 401 in Loyalist Township had to be closed down Tuesday night after a pick-up truck simply fell apart on the roadway. 

Lennox and Addington OPP said a pick-up truck was towing a camper trailer around 10:30 p.m. when it had a mechanical failure and broke into pieces across both the east and westbound lanes of Highway 401, near County Road 6. 
No one was hurt but the highway was closed for a few hours to clean up the debris. It has since re-opened. 

Police said their investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
