Investigators believe speed may have been a factor when the truck was “ramping on” from Third Line to the 403.

Heavy tow vehicles, fire units and OPP were still on scene as of 9 a.m. occupying several lanes as attempts are made to remove the truck.

Police say part of the delay is the transferring of chickens to new trucks that have arrived on scene.
