Accident closes 401


GRAFTON - Highway 401 is closed in both directions following a two-vehicle accident between Grafton and Cobourg.

A transport in the westbound lanes struck the median wall at about 11 a.m. Monday and the pup trailer entered the eastbound lanes, striking a vehicle.

Both the driver of the transport and the female driver of the other vehicle were transported to Northumberland Hills Hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.

The transport was carrying about 50,000 pounds of plastic pellets from Kingston to Vaughan.

An OPP team has been called in to reconstruct the scene, and it's estimated the highway will be closed until about 2 p.m.
