A transport truck that overturned near Napanee will cause lane restrictions on Hwy 401 this evening in order to facilitate recovery.

At approximately 3:40 a.m. Thursday morning an eastbound transport truck left the roadway and overturned in the median between the east and westbound lanes. The driver of the truck, a 42 year-old Markham man, was not injured in the crash. No charges have been laid at this time but the cause of the collision remains under investigation.

Recovery of the truck and its load will require lane restrictions on Hwy 401 eastbound this evening. Starting around 8 p.m., the passing lane through the area of the crash will be closed so that recovery equipment can be moved into place. It is anticipated that the driving lane will remain open and traffic volumes will be low enough that there will not be any significant impact or delays to traffic.
