  1. Excavator on the QEW driving to a jobsite nearby at 1am.
    Nothing suspicious about that at all…

  2. The Queen Elizabeth Way is a 400-series highway in the Canadian province of Ontario linking Toronto with the Niagara Peninsula and Buffalo, New York. The freeway begins at the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie and travels 139.1 kilometres around the western end of Lake Ontario, ending at Highway 427 in Toronto.
    Constructed: November 24, 1917
    Length: 139.1 km

    I had no idea myself, so I thought I’d share…

  3. Those Highways are extremely dangerous,if it’s not a transport truck driver,it’s a boy racer,a bouncing tire or construction crews working on the highway.

  4. Very sad. What are the chances of this happening…if someone can calculate this probability with all the factors at play I would love to see it.

  5. Who drives an excavator on the highway? At that time of night?…then hits a overhead sign..that driver should be imprisoned and sued just for being so stupid and negligent
