Pigs caused traffic chaos on Highway 401

The eastbound lanes of Highway 401 through Mississauga are expected to remain clogged throughout the afternoon following a crash involving a tractor trailer hauling pigs, the second recent accident involving livestock on a GTA road.

Monday morning's crash occurred near Winston Churchill Blvd. Ontario Provincial Police originally shut down all eastbound and westbound lanes, but then re-opened the westbound ones.

"About 8 a.m. this morning, Highway 401 eastbound was slowing down as it usually does in morning rush hour," OPP Sgt. Cam Woolley told CTV.ca Toronto.
