SARNIA, Ont. – Provincial police say charges have been laid following an investigation into a collision last November that closed part of Highway 402 in Sarnia, Ont., for several days.

Police say the Indian Road overpass sustained considerable structural damage on Nov. 23 when the load being pulled by a transport truck on the highway collided with the overpass.

OPP say a 55-year-old Terrance Hamilton of Toronto has been charged with careless driving, over-height vehicle and operating an unsafe commercial motor vehicle.

In addition, Automatic Coating Limited of Toronto is charged with over-height vehicle and operating an unsafe commercial motor vehicle.

Hamilton and the company are scheduled to appear in court in Sarnia on Feb. 12.

The eastbound lanes of Highway 402 reopened on Nov. 26 after the damaged section of the overpass was removed.
