OTTAWA -- The westbound lanes on Highway 401 have reopened near Cornwall after an early morning crash involving several tractor-tractor trailers closed the lanes completely.

Two passenger vehicles also left the roadway in the same area.
Police say no one was injured.
Speaking to CTV News at the scene OPP Const. Tylor Copeland said four tractor trailers were involved.
"They were all separate incidents and there were no injuries reported in any of the collisions," Copeland said.
