Highway 17A, from the junction of Highway 658 and Highway 17A to Highway 596, is closed in both directions, following a two-vehicle collision. All lanes are currently blocked, as emergency responders work to remove the tractor trailer unit and sedan involved.
Traffic control is currently in place, as well as firefighters from the Kenora Fire Department and paramedics. It is currently unknown whether there are any injuries, or when the highway will be re-opened.
The accident took place around 12:00 p.m. Due to the closure, the Northwestern Ontario Student Services Consortium says that all school buses may be delayed.
