Photos are published here with Mark's permission. Mark saw the car in front of him slow down, and was able to pull over. He's wasn't hurt and his car wasn't damaged, but he's stuck on the 401 for a while. The OPP has shut down the eastbound lanes and traffic is slow going westbound.
Folks, this is a great reminder to a) slow down and b) keep your distance when driving on the 401. Especially during snowy weather.
