Tractor Trailer Jackknifes On Hwy. 402, Injures Driver

One man has been taken to hospital after a tractor trailer crash on Hwy. 402, west of Strathroy.

The Ontario Provincial Police say on Wednesday around 6pm, emergency crews responded after the westbound tractor trailer jackknifed and came to a rest in a ditch.

The male driver of the transport truck has been taken to hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The leftmost lane of westbound Hwy. 402 was blocked west of Kerwood Rd., near mile marker 54, as a result of the crash. The highway has since been cleared and the left lane has been reopened to traffic.
