·1 min read

An early morning collision involving three tractor trailers closed lanes of Highway 3 westbound for hours as crews cleaned up a spillage of mostly beer.

Police responded to a call of a collision at approximately 6:15 a.m. Thursday morning at Huron Church Road and E.C. Row.

No one was injured in the collision and police have charged the rearmost driver with following too closely.

Essex OPP media officer Const. Amanda Allen says one lane remains blocked as crews work to offload two of the tractor trailers. OPP is asking drivers to avoid the area.

Allen says one trailer was carrying a load of beer and another was carrying steel coils.

"Both very heavy loads and we're very happy to report that nobody was injured in this collision," Allen said.
