UPDATE: EB Hwy. 402 Still Closed After Fatal Crash
Middlesex OPP say the eastbound lanes of Hwy. 402 remain closed between Colonel Talbot Rd. and Hwy. 401 in London after a single-vehicle crash that killed a 28-year-old Brampton man early Monday morning. Police reopened one westbound lane just before 10am Tuesday.
Police say the collision occurred around 7:30am Monday just east of Wonderland Rd., when a fuel truck travelling eastbound went out of control. The truck collided with a median in the centre lane and overturned upon impact.
