Horrifying Highway 401 scene - NAPANEE, Ontario

Col Man
NAPANEE, Ont. (CP) - It was a horrifying scene on the nation's busiest highway Monday morning, with mangled cars and a disabled tractor-trailer scattered across Highway 401.

Early calls to the nearby Ontario Provincial Police detachment in Napanee, Ont., painted a terrifying picture of a tractor-trailer crushing several cars on the highway.

But initial appearances were deceiving.

"When the officers first arrived, they weren't sure what they had because there were crushed cars all over the place," said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Jim Cosgrove.

"But it turned out that it was part of the load of crushed cars - fortunately."

Police closed a section of the highway running through eastern Ontario for a few hours when a tractor-trailer hauling the cars dropped part of its load early Monday.

Several of the vehicles came loose and slid onto the highway. It looked like a tragic, multi-vehicle crash, but the cars were empty and had already been scrunched for scrap metal.

There were no injuries and police reopened the highway a short time later.
