Highway 401 Closed Following Second Collision in Milton

One person was trapped in a vehicle after the collision and has since been taken to hospital

The eastbound lanes of Highway 401 at Winston Churchill Boulevard have partially reopened following a multi-vehicle crash in Mississauga.

This crash may have occurred due to delays and traffic caused by the first collision, Schmidt says.

"This so easily could have turned fatal", said OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. He was taken to St. Michael's Hospital for treatment.

The westbound lanes at Trafalgar Road were also temporarily closed to allow an Orgne air ambulance to land and transport the victim, who needed to be extricated from his vehicle.

The Ontario Provincial Police said it happened near the Winston Churchill Blvd off-ramp.

Emergency service crews, firefighters and tow trucks are on the scene.

A driver has serious injuries after a crash involving two transport trucks on Highway 401 in Milton.

Video from the scene showed serious damage to the vehicles involved and there's a significant amount of debris in the area as well. Amazingly they were conscious and breathing.

Police have not yet said when the lanes will be reopened, but Schmidt said "it's going take us a little while to get this all swept up, cleaned up and removed".
