Crash closes Highway 400 near Barrie

The driver of a transport truck has been charged with careless driving following a crash that closed Highway 400 near Barrie this morning.

Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Kerry Schmidt said a transport truck was heading northbound on the highway near Innisfil Beach Road when the driver lost control and took out the guiderail.

Schmidt says parts of the guiderail ended up in the southbound lanes of the highway and a southbound transport truck driver hit the damaged rail and ended up in the west ditch.

No serious injuries were reported but the highway has been shut down in both directions between Innisfil Beach Road and Mapleview Drive.
