Highway 400 south of Barrie has reopened in both directions, 10 hours after closing due to a multi vehicle crash.

The crash happened before noon and shut down the northbound and southbound 400 north of Highway 89.

There was a collision involving two vehicles in the southbound lanes and the vehicles were struck by a transport truck that couldn't stop in time.

The truck then  hit a cube van, which veered into the northbound lanes and struck two other vehicles.

One person was seriously injured.

    Every day this sort of thing happens. The common factor with all of them is someone, somewhere, was an idiot driver and started a chain reaction.

    This sort of thing is a very strong argument for the Google driverless cars. On the plus side, accidents would drop by several thousand percent. On the minus side, the insurance industry would go ballistic, because people wouldn't pay the same usurious rates for insurance that they now are, because accidents would drop to almost zero. Actually, that's a good thing. Screw the insurance companies. Let them go out and find honest work.
