No injuries reported after crash on Highway 8
KITCHENER -- All the lanes of Highway 8 were closed south of Cambridge due to a crash on Thursday afternoon.
Ontario Provincial Police say it happened just after 3 p.m. near Safari Road.
Both the transport truck and pickup truck involved were heading eastbound on the highway when the pickup made a left turn and was rear-ended by the tractor trailer loaded with steel, according to officials.
"The first vehicle did go off onto the left shoulder and the tractor trailer, which was following behind, did go into the right ditch," said Const. Middleton of the Burlington OPP. "We shut down the highway for approximately an hour while we investigated and removed debris off the road."
She adds that fluids were spilled as a result of the crash and were being cleaned off the road.
The tractor trailer also hit bins and a parked trailer on the property of a business.
Neither driver was hurt. The highway was open again by 5:30 p.m.
