An update on a story we brought to you yesterday in which a commercial vehicle fire caused significant delays on Highway 401.

Yesterday (June 15) around 4:30 pm, the Northumberland OPP responded a single motor vehicle collision on Highway 401 and 25 County Rd in the westbound lanes involving a utility vehicle.

The vehicle suffered a blown tire causing it to lose control, hit the guardrail, then catch fire and caused significant damage to the freeway that required immediate repair to allow use of the lane.
