The east bound 401 has been closed since about 230 this afternoon because of a two vehicles collision less than 5 kilometres west of Gananoque.
One of the cars is actually an opp cruiser and police tell me that at least two people have been sent to hospital but that none of the injuries are life threatening.
The officer I spoke to was unable to tell me the circumstances surrounding the accident.
OPP collision investigators are en route but it’s unclear whether or not the special investigations unit will be attending.
And finally there’s no timetable as of now for the re opening of the east bound lanes.
As of now the east bound lanes between Joyceville and deer Ridge Road could remain closed well into the evening.
