(UPSALA, ON) – Upsala is located about 144 kilometers west of Thunder Bay, down Highway 17 which is also known as the Trans-Canada Highway.
In a video submitted to us by an avid reader/follower, it can be seen what kind of dangerous crap happens on the roads that drivers have to contend with.
The non-divided highway has some of the highest rates surrounding fatal collisions in the province.
The video shows a cube-van attempting to pass a transport but appearing not to have enough jam to get it done quick enough before oncoming traffic comes. This incident unfolded near Upsala.
Traffic can be seen driving along the shoulders of the highway and off the pavement to avoid a head on collision.
There was a convoy of cube vans barrelling down highway 17 during the day, which can be considered very unsafe and may be illegal in some situations. Police have been made aware of the incident and have been supplied with the video. At least three people have contacted police about the incident. We have not been able to confirm if police have laid any charges at this point. We are waiting to hear back from the OPP.
