CBC News: No charges laid in fatal Embrun pileup

It looks like the OPP have completed their investigation of the huge pileup that occured near Embrun on the 417 in February. Five people died in the accident which involved 5 tractor trailers and 33 other vehicles. The accident occured due to a sudden white-out condition on the highway. This lead to a chain reaction as other drivers were also unable to stop due to a flash freeze of the highway.
