Around 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday Chatham-Kent police, fire, EMS, along with Chatham-Kent O.P.P. responded to a semi truck pulling a fuel trailer that had crossed the median of both the 401 westbound on and off ramps at Kent Bridge Road, and became airborne. While the semi was pulling a trailer used to transport fuel, Chatham-Kent O.P.P. say that the trailer was empty, therefore no fuel leaked on the roadway.

At this time it is not known what caused the tractor-trailer to lose control and jackknife.

There were no injuries reported.
