There was a crash this morning in the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 at Chatham that caused three people to be hospitalized, including one with critical injuries.
First responders, including paramedics, fire crews and police were called around 9:30 a.m. about a crash that happened near the exit to Dillon Road. All three were transported to Chatham hospital. Two of the victims had minor injuries.
An emergency detour was created, funneling eastbound traffic to Highway 2, starting at Queen’s Line near Tilbury and heading to Bloomfield Road in Chatham.
According to Chatham fire Chief Chris Case, the area had heavy congestion, which is why he asked people to stay away for a few hours.
While there was a convoy of trucks going through Southwestern Ontario on Highway 401 – they were involved in a protest against the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for truck drivers who cross the border – Case said the crash did not involve this convoy.
