BELLEVILLE – There have been a number of crashes reported in the area due to freezing weather conditions. Those include:
- The Highway 401 ramp at Exit 509 at Brighton was closed this morning due to a single-vehicle accident involving a tractor-trailer. Police announced a bit after 11:30 a.m. that it has been reopened.
- A two-vehicle collision on the westbound 401, near Napanee.
- Old Highway 2 just east of Shannonville was closed Tuesday morning because of a serious crash.
- A truck was spotted overturned in a ditch off of Wallbridge-Loyalist Road around 6:30 a.m.
The report warned people of “occasional freezing drizzle and brief freezing rain possible” on Tuesday.
Jessica Blair, from Peterborough, said that having snow tires helped a lot when driving in the freezing rain.
