Two seriously hurt, westbound Hwy 417 closed after truck crash near Quebec border

Two people were taken to hospital with serious injuries after a crash between a transport truck and a parked truck used for highway safety during construction on Highway 417 near the Quebec border on Wednesday afternoon.

The highway was expected to be closed until at least 5 p.m. as investigators examined the scene and leaking fuel from the tractor-trailer was cleaned up.

The injured people were at the wheel of their respective vehicles.

Hawkesbury OPP got the call of the collision just after 1 p.m.

The crash happened about two km west of the Quebec border.

The westbound lanes of the 417 were closed between the Quebec border and the first exit, which is at St. Eugene Road to the south and Front Road to the north.
