Traffic is moving again on the section of the 401 at Mallorytown that was closed due to a 30-vehicle pileup and chemical spill. Police say the road reopened in both directions shortly before 10 last night.
The collisions — which left a truck driver dead – happened Tuesday near Kingston, during a snowstorm that buried much of southern and eastern Ontario. O-P-P have identified the trucker as 45-year-old Ian Melville of Hamilton. His truck was carrying a toxic chemical that leaked from the rig, causing the highway’s lengthy closure while crews worked to clean up the spill.
