On July 16, 2018 at 6:12 am officers with the Napanee Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police and Greater Napanee Emergency Services responded to a motor vehicle collision on Highway 401 eastbound, just east of Palace Rd in Greater Napanee, finding that a tractor trailer had collided with another tractor trailer which had been parked on the side of the highway. No one was injured, say OPP, however one lane was closed for a period of time to allow for removal of the damaged vehicles.
24 year old Varinder Mann, of Brampton, ON, is charged with Careless Driving under the Highway Traffic Act.
All lanes are now open but recovery is causing some delays. Napanee OPP are recommending that motorists stay on the highway as there is no faster route and advise to always give yourself more space to react to potential hazards.
