25 accidents reported during the snowfall

With a sudden and heavy snow fall yesterday that led to the closure of Highway 401 due to a fatality and multi vehicle collisions; traffic was then diverted through the city causing the city’s streets. The increase in traffic and poor road conditions led to numerous collisions.   As a result of the road conditions several streets had to be temporarily closed until they could be plowed and sanded.  Several vehicles were unable to make the climb up many streets that had hills and had to be towed to level ground. Of the many collisions reported, a fire truck was struck by a vehicle at one of the collision scenes.  Thankfully, there were not any serious injuries reported in the collisions.
