Highway 401 covered in toilet paper after crash
Ontario highways have been as eventful as they are busy this week between a salt truck pushing a vehicle sideways across several lanes on the 401, a pedestrian walking across the 427 and now a transport truck spilling toilet paper all over the 401.
Ontario Provincial Police posted about the bizarre collision during the afternoon commute Tuesday, saying it happened between two transport trucks just east of the Thousand Islands Bridge.

No injuries. Will take a few hours to cleanup. #Slowdown and expect delays.#ONHwys @OPP_COMM_ER ^bd pic.twitter.com/nOkEjXNHRK

Excuse the pun but that is one shitty mess.— Cyn.B. (@Cynthia7618) January 15, 2020
This portion of Highway 401 was forced to close down to one lane at the time of the incident while the mess was cleaned up.
Should be wiped up quickly— Mike (@ShadowWatcher) January 14, 2020
Crews then spent several hours cleaning up the mess.
Looks like Costco's going to be caught short for awhile.— Art Dow (@artjdow) January 14, 2020
Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash.
