Global News reported this morning that the OPP were praising the skill of two drivers who did an amazing job avoiding a massively terrifying trucking accident in Simcoe yesterday. Dash cam footage shows the incredibly evasive action on behalf of the drivers. OPP were dispatched to Highway 24 near Wyndham Road 12 for reports of a collision between two large trucks just before 10 a.m. One truck was travelling northbound, and the other southbound, when a pickup truck decided to turn out in front of these gentlemen and stop directly on Highway 24, causing a near devastating collision that could have resulted in multiple deaths. The driver of the pickup truck reportedly fled the scene but was located not long after. Charges are pending, according to Sanchuk.
