Highway Re-Opened Driver Charged

FROM/DE:  Upper Ottawa Valley OPP                DATE:  August 2, 2018
Highway Re-Opened – Driver Charged
(LAURENTIAN HILLS, ON) – On August 1, 2018, at just after 1230pm, the Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a single Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) collision on Highway 17 between Brouse Road and Bass Lake Road in Laurentian Hills.  A westbound tractor trailer lost control and rolled onto its side spilling its load of powdered nickel on to the roadway.  The driver, and lone occupant of the CMV, was not injured.  Local detours were put in place and Highway 17 was closed for almost 12 hours as a result of the investigation and to allow for the removal of the CMV and the spilled cargo, which was removed with the assistance of a vacuum truck. 
The 39-year-old driver, Jean Francois GAGNON of Montreal, Quebec, has been charged with careless driving under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA).
