Drivers who got caught in this evening's traffic snarl on the 190 northbound can be grateful that they weren't heading east on the Burlington Skyway this afternoon.
"Eastbound lanes on the Burlington Skyway were closed after a truck collided with construction Thursday afternoon.
"According to the Ministry of Transportation, the collision occurred around 3:45 p.m. when a dump truck with a raised box 'struck the Burlington Bay Skyway while travelling the Toronto-bound lanes.' ”
Drivers and media took to Twitter with images and updates about the crash:
