Ontario Provincial Police are reporting serious injuries from a rollover on Highway 401 Friday morning near Deseronto.
The crash happened in the eastbound lanes just before 5 a.m. and involved a red Jeep and a transport truck.
Staff Sgt. Chris Watkins from the Lennox and Addington detachment of the OPP told the Whig-Standard that one person has suffered serious, potentially life-altering injuries and was transported to hospital by paramedics.
Watkins said the crash is still under investigation and charges have yet to be laid.
The collision forced the closure of the eastbound lanes at Deseronto Road for much of the day. One lane reopened just before 3:30 p.m. and the OPP promised the second would reopen shortly after.
