Se­ri­ous crash on Hwy. 403 off-ramp

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Emer­gency crews were called in to res­cue trapped pa­tients fol­low­ing a T-bone crash in icy con­di­tions near the west­bound High­way 403 off-ramp to High­way 52.

Hamil­ton po­lice Staff Sgt. Chris Hast­ings said a car and a pickup truck were in­volved in the col­li­sion around 7 p.m. and that “icy con­di­tions were prob­a­bly a fac­tor.”

Hast­ings didn’t im­me­di­ately have de­tails about in­juries to the ve­hi­cle driv­ers or pas­sen­gers, but said two trapped oc­cu­pants re­quired help from emer­gency work­ers.

Hast­ing said the col­li­sion re­quired tem­po­rary clo­sure of the off-ramp to High­way 52 and likely some High­way 403 lane clo­sures for emer­gency ve­hi­cles. The fire depart­ment at one point re­ported seven re­spond­ing emer­gency ve­hi­cles at the scene.

Hamil­ton was un­der an ice and rain warn­ing for most of the day.
