Emergency services responded to at least five vehicles that were involved in collision starting at 5 a.m. on Highway 401 westbound, west of Burnham Street in Cobourg.

Two vehicles collided approximately two-kilometres west of Burnham Street, with both vehicles sustaining damage.

Just ahead, a tractor trailer jack-knifed into the median taking out a number of guard rails.

And approximately two kilometres east of County Road 28, two tractor trailers jack-knifed into the north ditch.

Debris was cleared from the highway at approximately 1 p.m.
