A careless driving charge has been laid in connection with a crash that tied up traffic on the Toronto-bound QEW this morning.

O.P.P. Sergeant Kerry Schmidt says that for unknown reasons, the driver of a dump truck lost control approaching Brant Street and slammed into the right side guard rail.
The impact damaged the concrete alongside the highway, ruptured a saddle tank and sent about 400 litres of diesel into a grassy area.
The cleanup will continue into this afternoon and is causing a visual distraction.
All Toronto-bound lanes were closed just before Brant Street.
Traffic was being forced on to the westbound 403 or the eastbound 407.
