A section of Highway 416 was closed Thursday morning for police to investigate an accident involving an Ontario Provincial Police cruiser.

Early Thursday morning, OPP closed the northbound lanes of the 416 between Highway 43 and County Road 19.

Just after midnight, police say a transport truck hit a parked OPP cruiser on Highway 416 near Kemptville.

The OPP officer had just pulled over another truck driver, who was in the back of the cruiser at the time. The emergency lights were on when the second transport struck the back corner of the police car.

The truck, which was carrying food, then flipped onto its side.

The three men were taken to hospital and released. There were no life-threatening injuries.
