A 25-year-old man from Brampton is facing a careless driving charge after crashing his transport truck and spilling a load of yogurt on Highway 401.

The crash happened in the westbound lanes near Meadowvale Road around 3:30 a.m. on Friday.

The truck hit an overhead post that supports an electronic sign, ripping open the entire side of the trailer that was loaded with yogurt.

No injuries were reported.

Officials with the Ministry of Transportation are at the scene assessing if there is any damage to the sign. But OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said there doesn’t appear to be any damage.

The right lanes of the express are expected to remain closed until 1:30 p.m. for the cleanup.
