Update: Highway reopened, Moving van hits Alban house, destroys hydro pole (VIDEO)

A very unusual accident scene in Alban Ont.

Update 8 a.m.

OPP reports Highway 64 between Courchesne Rd and Highway 607 reopened at 3:30 a.m. and the scene has been cleared. 


Original story:

Not much information yet, but Northeast OPP posted a picture this evening on Twitter of an accident that happened around 5 p.m.

It shows a Penske truck, upended onto a house in Alban today, just west of Noelville on Highway 64.

Ontario Provincial Police have closed off that section of Highway 64 in between Courchsene Road and Highway 607 due to downed power lines. By the picture, it appears the truck hit the ditch before somersaulting onto the house. 

The investigation is ongoing and the section of Highway 64 remains closed.

We'll share the details when the OPP releases more information.

Thanks to Sharon Gauthier for the video.
