hamilton crashes snow squall

Hamilton paramedics are advising drivers to exercise caution in the wake of multiple collisions related to wintery driving conditions.

Shortly before 10:30 a.m., the Hamilton Paramedic Service said it had responded to several crashes this morning (Nov. 28) because snow squalls were making driving more difficult.

In a post on X, the service said it had seen more crashes along the mountain, towards Ancaster.

“Please slow down, leave space and drive for the conditions,” paramedics wrote. 

The post comes after over 100 crashes were reported after snow started falling yesterday in Ontario.

But even before the bulk of the snow started to fall, the OPP in the western region of Ontario was called to multiple crashes.

Police responded to over 100 crashes between 1 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday (Nov. 27), OPP Acting Sergeant Ed Sanchuk said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).
