YORK REGION — Two transportation workers were injured in an early morning collision on Highway 400 in Bradford, Ont. Nov. 5.

According to an OPP Highway Safety Division X post, a passenger vehicle entered into the road closure of a collision scene. Two Ministry of Transportation (MTO) blocker truck drivers who were blocking the road from an earlier single vehicle collision were standing outside their vehicles when a vehicle struck one of the MTO trucks on scene.

The incident occurred just after 7 a.m. on Highway 400 southbound at Fifth Line.

The injured blocker truck drivers were not MTO employees but employees of a subcontractor. They were taken to a Toronto trauma centre with serious injuries. The latest Tweet indicates one driver is stable with serious injuries and the other driver is in life-threatening condition.

The driver and passenger of the vehicle involved in the incident were also taken to a local hospital with injuries.

The southbound Highway 400 from Highway 88 to Highway 9 was closed for several hours.
