One person was taken to hospital Monday morning after their vehicle was struck by a tire which reportedly flew off a tractor trailer.
It happened around 6:00 a.m. in the express lanes of Highway 401 eastbound just past Highway 427.
Several lanes were closed for the investigation but re-opened about an hour later.
It’s not clear if charges will be laid.
UPDATE: COLLISION: #Hwy401 EB just after Hwy 427 – Fire on scene, 3 lanes blocked, 1 right lane remains open. ^jt
