Residents Help in Horrific Multi Car Crash on Hwy 401 Toronto

Last Friday evening residents, in an otherwise quiet neighbourhood along the 401 hwy in Ontario, rushed out of their homes and into the darkness from a thunderous sound of a massive multi vehicle 20 car pile crash long the hwy.

The accident happened at 10:30 p.m. west of Brock St. east of Toronto and near Whitby, Ontario.

Provincial Police Sgt. of Ontario Kerry Schmidt stated that a west-bound tractor trailer filled with thousands of pounds of steel had failed to slow down for in the construction zone and smashed into a number of vehicles on the highway.

Emergency crews, paramedics and firefighters worked tirelessly for hours to free and assist motorists who were trapped in the wreckage.

Sadly, 2 adults from one vehicle and a 10 year old boy from another vehicle were killed in the accident. 5 people had been rushed to hospital in critical condition and eleven more casualties suffered from serious but not life threatening injuries.

Hwy. 401 between Salem Road and Brock Street remained closed in both directions into Saturday afternoon as the OPP investigated and tow trucks cleared away the mangled vehicles.

As investigation is in progress there is no word yet on any charges.
