Police ID drivers involved in Hwy 401 collision captured on video


TORONTO — Ontario Provincial Police say they have identified two drivers involved in a collision that was captured on video and posted online.

The video showed a construction truck pushing a car sideways across lanes of traffic on Highway 401 in north-end Toronto.

At the end of the video, the yellow truck squeezes the small sedan against the guardrail and drives off.

Police retweeted the video on Tuesday and asked for anyone with information to contact them.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says in a tweet this morning that the incident happened Monday and neither of the drivers suffered injuries.

Schmidt says the truck driver told police he was “unaware of the car.”

Police say no charges have been laid but the investigation is ongoing.
