A Windsor man has been charged following a tractor trailer collision and fire on the 401 Thursday.

Police say around 5:45 p.m., a westbound tractor trailer lost control and hit the north side cement barrier which caused it to slam into the centre barrier.

The centre barrier was then pushed into the eastbound lanes and the tractor trailer caught on fire.

The driver did not suffer any injuries.

A 57-year-old Windsor man has been charged with careless driving.
