The Temiskaming Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Temagami Fire Department and Nipissing District Emergency Medical Service (EMS) responded to a motor vehicle collision on highway 11 shortly before 7:00 a.m. this morning. The area was under a fog at the time when the collision occured.

The crash took place on Highway 11 near Rabbit Lake Road, south of Temagami, Ontario. 

The OPP's investigation revealed that the tractor trailer had been travelling southbound on Highway 11 when it lost control, ending up in Angus Lake.

Two occupants of the tractor trailer were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

The highway was closed in both directions this morning as a result of live hydro lines that were on the roadway. Hydro One attended for safety concerns and restoration of hydro.
