All lanes of Highway 417 reopened Tuesday evening following an afternoon of traffic chaos between the Bayshore and Moodie exits after a dump truck hit an overpass and crashed.

Ottawa paramedics reported the 22-year-old truck driver was taken to hospital in serious but stable condition.

Emergency crews removed spills of hydraulic fluid, oil, and fuel from the road way, after the dump truck’s box rose inexplicably as the truck was being driven along the highway, hitting the overpass.
