Ottawa accident highway 401 and highway 416 sends 2 to hospital with hip injury, pelvis injury, shoulder injury and severe leg fracture.
Accident highway 401
An accident on Highway 401, east of Brockville Friday resulted in a 20 car pileup accident and left two people with serious personal injuries. The accident occurred close to Maitland and the 416 split. Although the snow storm only lasted 5 minutes, it caused a lot of damage and injury. Cars and tractor trailers were swerving all over the highway and one tractor trailer caught flames. Given the number of vehicles involved in the accident, it’s no wonder there were not more injuries. Ottawa paramedics reported that a 68 year old woman suffered a hip injury, pelvis injury and shoulder injuries. They also reported that a 33 year old man suffered a fractured leg.
Thankfully many drivers were able to pullover to safety as the intense snow storm began. There is no doubt that this helped in keeping the number of injured down to 2. The Ottawa Police and the Ontario Provincial Police are investigating the accident. I am so thankful no one died and I hope that the 2 people who did suffer personal injury are able to recover fully from this terrible accident.
