QEW Closed in Hamilton

A headache for motorists Thursday morning: The QEW is closed in both directions in Hamilton between Fruitland and Centennial Parkway, following a truck accident.

According to the police, the truck driver lost control of his vehicle for an unknown reason and then ended up in the ditch.

In his race, the truck took electrical wires, which ended up on the road, hence the closing of the expressways.

Police opened an investigation to determine the cause of the accident.

Nobody was seriously injured.

A motorist was reported to be driving aggressively in the area just before the truck drove off, leaning from one lane to another, says OPP spokesman Kerry Schmidt.

The investigators seek to identify him and ask any witness to communicate with them.
