Truck Driver Charged After Ice Falls Onto SUV
A Mississauga trick driver has been charged after ice fell from his truck onto a vehicle on the 401.
OPP say it happened on February 2nd, 2019 around 11am in Chatham-Kent.
They say that a large piece of ice from the roof of a tractor-trailer travelling westbound near Highway 40 struck a westbound passenger vehicle causing significant damage to the front windshield.
No injuries were reported but the vehicle was rendered inoperable and was towed from the highway.
A 43-year-old Mississauga man has been charged with insecure load.
The OPP warn all motorists that failure to remove ice and snow from a motor vehicle can result in a fine, but more importantly could result in serious injury or death to other motorists.
