Ontario Police Survey Stalled Vehicles on Highways Impacted by Winter Storm

Several highways were closed in Toronto, Canada, on Monday, January 17, police said, as heavy snow halted drivers amid a winter storm warning for the region.

Footage filmed by the Ontario Provincial Police’s Highway Safety Division shows vehicles at a standstill along Highway 400 and 401, with one driver reporting a five-hour wait.

Up to 60 centimeters (about 23.6 inches) of snowfall was expected in Toronto while blowing snow would “significantly” reduce visibility, according to Environment and Climate Change Canada. Credit: Ontario Provincial Police Highway Safety Division via Storyful
