Westbound 401 CLOSED
All three lanes of the 401 Westbound are closed at Cedar Creek Road, just West of Cambridge. There was a fatal crash between two vehicles around 12:30pm. At this point, OPP are saying one car hit an SUV from behind and then spun out into the ditch. One driver is dead and police won’t be releasing any more information until the family has been notified. The 401 WB in that area is expected to stay closed for several hours, we will let you know more as soon as we’ve got the word from AM980. They’ve also got traffic and weather reports together for you every ten minutes on the two’s.
Freezing Rain Warning In Effect
We’ve got a Freezing Rain Warning in effect for London and surrounding areas. We’re looking at a chilly night with a mix of possible rain, snow and ice pellets with some higher winds and there’s a chance for power outages with anywhere from 5-15 milliletres of ice build-up expected by tomorrow afternoon.
That’s a heads up for your morning commute, and maybe fit the shower in tonight JUST IN CASE, you don’t want to be the stinky person at work tomorrow.
RIP Jim Hillyer / Phife Dawg
I’m tired of reporting DEATH. A few more gone too young as of today:
Federal Conservative MP for Medicine Hat, Alberta, Jim Hillyer, was found dead in his office this morning at 41. The cause of death has not been determined yet but we do know that Ottawa police did respond to a medical call and he was feeling ill yesterday.
Phife Dawg, co-founder of A Tribe Called Quest, has also passed at 45 after a history suffering with type-2 diabetes. Everyone’s got through A Tribe Called Quest phase, right?
Marcus Stroman to Start at Blue Jays Season Opener
John Gibbons has confirmed that Marcus Stroman will be starting opening day, next weekend, April 3rd against the Tampa Bay Rays. ,The 24 year old right-hander could have made his start opening day last year if it wasn’t for his injury! When he returned for four regular-season starts in September 2015, he went 4-0 and made three post-season starts against Texas and Kansas City, for a 1-0 record, 4.19 ERA with 10 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings. Can’t wait!!!
