‘We know who you are’ — Truck with raised box takes down highway sign


Canadian police are asking a truck driver to contact them after striking a highway sign, causing it collapse onto Highway 401 on Friday morning.

The incident occurred in the westbound lanes of the highway in Whitby around 7:45 a.m.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt described the sign strike:

“The truck was driving westbound with its box up. It collided with this sign … The driver then stopped just up the road here, about 100 yards, got out of his vehicle, dropped the box, and was then last scene exiting at Brock Street.”

No injuries were reported.

Schmidt added that a witness has identified the truck.

Schmidt is asking the truck driver to contact police:

“We know who you are and we’re coming for you right now and we’re coming for you right away, we are on our way. It would probably be better if you called the OPP right now and advised exactly where you are and where we can best meet up.”

Highway 401 has now reopened.
