OTTAWA, On. – An accident on the 417 westbound near Carling Sunday morning sent four people to hospital with minor injuries.

A car collided with another vehicle – which was pulled over in the left lane while a flat tire was being repaired – around 10:30 a.m.

The driver of the car, which struck the stalled vehicle, has been charged with careless driving.

“It’s not something you usually expect, somebody stopping, especially in the fast lane,” Ottawa OPP Constable Rheal Levac told 1310News.

If your car does break down on a highway, Levac recommended moving it over to the right-hand side, if possible, and making sure it is safe to get out of your vehicle.
