Traffic is practically at a standstill this morning on Highway 40 Eastbound. Last night there was a massive truck accident that happen at around 3:30 a.m. near Boulevard des Sources.
Three heavy trucks were involved in the crash and one of them caught on fire. The highway had to be closed indefinitely and cars are now being detoured off the highway.
What we know so far is that a truck crashed into another vehicle, then that vehicle hit a pickup truck, and the pickup truck ended up hitting a Transports Quebec worker.
The first truck caught on fire so firefighters had to be called in.
Three people had to be taken to the hospital including one man who is in critical condition.
Drivers are being asked to avoid the area if possible.
