More than 20 vehicles involved in accident on Highway 7

Highway 7 is closed between Omemee and Emily Park Road following a collision involving 24 vehicles, according to the OPP.

“With the inclement weather creating whiteouts and slippery road conditions, the OPP has already responded to almost 20 collisions on roadways within the City of Kawartha Lakes. It is strongly recommended that motorists only drive if absolutely necessary,” reads a media release.

“If you are driving today be prepared for whiteout conditions and, remember to be patient, create distance between you and the vehicle in front, and ensure that you have a fully charged cell phone for emergency situations.”
