Investigators say an eastbound van crossed the median and ended up in the westbound lanes where it was struck by a tractor trailer.

The 43-year-old van driver was taken to hospital with serious injuries. The 60-year-old trucker was not injured.

The highway was closed for some time this morning but has since reopened.
