There’s been a huge multi-vehicle crash on the eastbound 401 in the Woodstock area.
The eastbound lanes of the 401 near the Woodstock area have reopened at Foldens Line.
A 680News listener was travelling in the other direction and said there was a snow squall at the time.
“There were lots of different vehicles, a lot of transport trucks, some of them turned backwards, others slid off the edge. There were SUVs, regular cars, bumpers torn off, sides smashed in and glass broken,” Michael Kowalek, an associate producer with Rogers TV in London who was at the crash site, explained.
Despite the extensive damage, there are reports of only minor injuries.
The cell-phone video below was submitted to CityNews.ca by viewer Christian Grossi.
“It always amazes me when people walk away from these catastrophic collisions, “ said OPP Sergeant Dave Rektor. “You know they are so preventable that’s one of the aggravating factors.”
Police said people were not adjusting their driving to the snowy road conditions.
