KGH ISSUES CODE ORANGE AS RESULT OF MVC
3/14/2017 4:17:21 PM
The accident on the 401 is now affecting Kingston General Hospital. They have issued a code Orange with an influx of patience anticipated. It's recommended you avoid the hospital unless it's an emergency. The 401 east and westbound remains closed in Landsdown, with no word on when it will re-open. Several people including first responders were exposed to the toxic material that spilled from a tractor trailer. Almost all the liquid leaked onto the highway. There is a decontamination zone set up for the people who came into contact with it. The situation is still being considered a Hazmat and Mass Casualty, but so far there have been no reports of serious or life threatening injuries.
