 One female has been taken to hospital by air ambulance following a multi-vehicle crash in the westbound lanes of Highway 401 at Sweaburg Road.

West Region OPP said the woman had non life-threatening injuries.

People at the scene reported on Facebook that Ornge landed at about 5 p.m. and numerous emergency first responders were on the scene of the crash.

Conditions were reportedly at times slushy and icy on the highway.

A number of vehicles were reportedly in the ditch or had crashed into guard rails.

OPP Sgt. David Rektor confirmed “a number of vehicles collided” during the crash and that two lanes had reopened.

More updates are coming.
