A major arterial road in Caledon Village is closed for a police investigation, after a tractor-trailer carrying wind turbine parts struck a hydro pole there on Tuesday afternoon (July 15).

Police investigators with Caledon OPP have cordoned off Charleston Sideroad, west of Highway 10 to Main Street, for the ongoing investigation. The area is expected to remain closed for several hours.

“We are anticipating up until 6 p.m.,” said Caledon OPP Const. Brenda Evans.

According to Evans, a tractor-trailer carrying a wide load collided with a hydro pole on Charleston Sideroad early Tuesday afternoon.

The truck was carrying wind turbine parts destined for Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The police investigation into the incident is ongoing. It is not yet known whether any charges will be laid.

“It is still very, very early in the investigation,” Evans said.
