Highway 401 is open again through Kingston, Ont., after a fatal collision Sunday afternoon involving between 30 and 40 vehicles. It happened near the Joyceville Road exit just after 2:30 p.m.

Curtis Dick told CBC News that one person had died in the pileup, which involved at least one tractor-trailer.

The OPP, Chatham-Kent Emergency Medical Services and Chatham-Kent Fire Department responded to the single motor vehicle collision at about 1 a.m. Sunday.

The Kingston area is now under a winter travel advisory. The person's name has not been released.

Paramedics said 16 patients were taken to hospital, three of them with life-threatening injuries.

OPP said Kingston Police and the local Red Cross are coordinating their resources at a warming centre at Rideau Heights Community Centre.

Police said that vehicles left on the highway will be towed and motorists are asked to call Frontenac detachment of the OPP on Monday for details on where the vehicle was taken.

The westbound lanes of Highway 401 were closed for about seven hours as the OPP investigated and the highway has reopened to traffic.
