On September 9, 2018 shortly before 7:00 a.m., members of the Temiskaming Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Temagami Fire Department and Nipissing District Emergency Medical Service (EMS) responded to a call for a motor vehicle collision on Highway 11 near Rabbit Lake Road, south of Temagami, Ontario.

Further investigation revealed that the tractor-trailer had been travelling southbound on Highway 11, and lost control. The tractor trailer ended up in Angus Lake.

The highway had to be closed in both directions as a result of live hydro lines that were on the roadway.

Simranjeet SANDHU, 39 years old, of Brampton, Ontario is charged with the following:

  • Fail to drive in marked lane, contrary to section 142(1) of the Highway Traffic Act (H.T.A.)

The tractor-trailer is scheduled to be removed at a later time. Further updates will be provided once they become available.
