Emergency crews on the scene of a 24 vehicle crash on Highway 7 at Emily Park Road

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Kawartha Lakes OPP are advising people to stay home after responding to a number of crashes on Monday.

Emergency crews are currently on scene of a collision involving 24 motor vehicles. As a result, Highway 7 is now closed between Omemee and Emily Park Road.

With the inclement weather creating whiteouts and slippery road conditions, the OPP has already responded to almost 20 collisions on roadways within the City of Kawartha Lakes. It is strongly recommended that motorists only drive if absolutely necessary.

If you are driving today be prepared for whiteout conditions and, remember to be patient, create distance between you and the vehicle in front, and ensure that you have a fully charged cell phone for emergency situations.
