3-truck crash on Highway 401 leaves 1 driver dead

3-truck crash on Highway 401 leaves 1 driver dead”

One man is dead after a collision involving three commercial trucks on Ontario's busiest highway. An air ambulance has been called the area.

The OTA is part of an upcoming working group with the Ministry of Transportation and the OPP to develop strategies to reduce distracted and aggressive driving, the association said. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and later identified as 59-year-old Ajax resident Abdual Waheed.

All eastbound lanes on Highway 401 at Cedar Creek Rd. will likely remain closed for several hours.

Technical Collision Investigators (TCI) are on scene investigating and the Highway remains closed at this time.

"Absolutely devastating seeing this kind of trauma", Schmidt said at the scene of Friday's collision.

The cause of the collision has not been determined but Schmidt said driver inattention could be a factor. Traffic was slowing down prior to this collision. "Traffic may have been slowing down for that or may have just been slowing down for regular rush hour congestion but here we have a transport truck slamming into the back of slowing or almost stopped traffic".

"We are putting drivers on notice that the OPP will pursue every investigative avenue following serious collisions and hold at-fault drivers accountable to the full extent of the law".
