A 34-year-old man is facing charges after an early morning crash on the 401 near Chatham. opp-2-375x420-1

OPP say a westbound transport lost control, flipped onto its side, and skidded about 500 metres across the highway, coming to rest in the centre median.

No one was hurt, but the driver has since been charged with careless driving.

Meantime authorities will be shutting down the westbound lanes of the highway later tonight to remove the truck from the median.

The closure is expected to last for about an hour.
