Condom Truck Tips, Spills Load
By April Kemick, Sun Media
LONDON, Ont. — The rubber truly hit the road yesterday when two tractor-trailers collided on Hwy. 401 near Ingersoll. One, carrying thousands of condoms, jackknifed and flipped onto its side, blocking the 401’s east lanes and snarling traffic for hours.
The driver and passenger of that rig — police said it was hauling 250 kilos of prophylactics — were taken to hospital for minor injuries, said OPP Const. Laurie Hawkins. The driver of the other transport, which stayed upright, was unhurt.
Hawkins said it wasn’t clear what caused the crash after 2 p.m. Preliminary investigation indicated the condom-filled truck was headed east behind the other rig when the first driver slammed on the brakes.
The driver of the condom truck also tried to brake, but swiped the back of the other rig, with the truck jackknifing and landing on its side. Airbags were placed under the condom truck to right it.
