Hwy. 427 truck rollover, gravel spill causes gridlock

A dump truck rolled over on a Hwy. 427 ramp on Friday, spilling gravel across the road and causing gridlock for hours.

It happened around noon on the ramp from northbound Hwy. 427 to westbound Hwy. 401 in Toronto.

The driver had minor injuries, and no other vehicles were involved.

The northbound express lanes of Hwy. 427 were closed for several hours and two of the three reopened around 5 p.m.

The OPP said the leftmost lane would remain closed overnight for repairs.
