A 52-year-old man from Brampton faces careless driving charges after a transport truck spilled its load of salad dressing on the DVP northbound ramp to Highway 401 west late Tuesday morning.

The driver, who has yet to be named, was taken to hospital as a precaution as crews worked for most of the day to clean up the mess.

“You can see the traffic that is coming southbound is very slow,” said OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt from the scene.

Schmidt said the trailer had food products, specifically salad dressing and mayonnaise inside of it.

“I am being told many hours, most of the afternoon until we get the vehicle upright,” Schmidt said.
