A woman has been transported to the hospital in serious condition following a hit-and-run collision on Highway 401 near Highway 427 Friday afternoon, OPP said.

Police allege a driver of a black pickup truck cut off a silver sedan, forcing the driver of the sedan to suddenly slow down.  The sedan was then rear-ended by a tractor-trailer truck, resulting in serious damage to the sedan.

Photos and video from the scene showed drivers stopping and attempting to free the woman from the mangled wreck.

Police said they are searching for a black pickup truck, possibly with a logo on the side.

The westbound lanes of Highway 401 at Highway 427 were shut down for the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the OPP directly. Tips can also be left anonymously with Crime Stoppers.
