Driver crashes after going wrong way on Hwy. 407

Highway 407 was temporarily shut down Monday evening, after a suspect crashed when headed eastbound in the westbound lanes.

Emergency crews were called to the scene at Highway 407 at Derry Road in Woodbridge around 8:00 p.m. after reports of a car driving the wrong way, allegedly at speeds of up to 160 km/hr.

Ontario Provincial Police units tried to stop the suspect’s car, but eventually had to make contact with the vehicle to get it to stop.

The female driver was arrested and taken to hospital as a precaution.

The OPP cruiser sustained damage in the incident. The investigation is ongoing, and there is no word on what, if any charges the driver is facing.
