Police have reopened a stretch of Hwy. 410 in Brampton after a truck driver had a “medical episode” and died on Thursday.

According to police, there was a transport truck collision near the Steeles Ave. exit of Hwy. 410 on Thursday afternoon.

Prov. Const. Timothy Dunnah with the OPP Highway Safety Division said the male driver of the transport truck had a “medical episode,” but was able to move his vehicle off the road.

Dunnah said witnesses on scene gave first aid to the driver, who was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The man’s family and coworkers have not yet been notified of the death, Dunnah said.

Police closed the righthand southbound lane of Hwy. 410 just north of Steeles Ave. as they investigate the incident.

The OPP said the lane had reopened around 4:15 p.m. on Thursday.

Police are asking anyone has information about the collision to contact the Mississauga OPP at (905)-858-8670.

    The Trucker that died was my Father (David L Watson. He was a great man! He was the best of us!! He loved his family and friends unconditionally. When he died his main concern was to get the truck off the road so he didn’t hurt anyone. That’s my Father!! He put others before himself his whole life! I love you Dad Rest in Celebration. We’ll see you again!!
