*****Update*****

Falconbridge Highway was reopened just after 9am after the tanker truck was towed off the road.

Greater Sudbury Police say a southbound car lost control and struck the oncoming transport truck and then a southbound pick-up truck.

One person was taken to hospital for observation.

Both the car and the transport sustained extensive damage.

The rig was carrying slurry, but none was leaked out of the container.

The driver of the car is charged with Careless Driving.

Falconbridge Highway is closed in both directions at Spruce Street, just north of Garson after a collision between a tractor trailer (tanker truck) and a vehicle.

Greater Sudbury Police expect the road to remain closed for some time since the larger vehicle jack-knifed across the highway and has to be towed away.

There is also debris strewn across the highway.

The accident happened just before 7:30am this morning.

There is no word on the extent of  injuries.

Several callers to our newsroom first alerted us to the situation and told us the roads were extremely slippery in that area.
