KITCHENER -- Friday morning drivers on Highway 401 in Cambridge have experienced delays after two transport trucks went into the ditch.
The OPP tweeted out the incident just after 8:30 a.m. and said the trucks are on the westbound side between Townline Road and Franklin Boulevard.
The right lane was closed as a result.
Officials are estimating around four hours for cleanup and expect delays in the area.
No injuries were reported.
Officials have yet to say the cause of the incident.
By 10 a.m., police had also reported another tractor trailer crash, this time in the opposite direction near Homer Watson Boulevard.
Officials said that the truck had jackknifed and ended up on the left shoulder. Only one lane was getting by on that side of the road.
The Twitter post suggested that the lanes were expected to be clear in an hour.
