Nobody was seriously injured in an accident involving an SUV, a pickup truck, and a tanker truck full of wine.

The collision took place on Highway 401 eastbound near Guelph, Ontario, Canada Friday, Feb. 12. The wine spilled and caused the 401 to be closed for several hours.

In a bit of irony, the SUV driver was charged with impaired driving and refusing a breathalyzer. 

Tractor-trailer totals three RVs ... in sales lot

A Connecticut trucker is said to have lost control of his tractor-trailer on Route 222 in Richmond Township near Reading, Pennsylvania Monday morning Feb. 15 and it struck a fence and crashed into a row of travel trailers and a utility pole, according to local police.

Fleetwood Police say Paul E. Sipler, 25, of Mansfield, Pennsylvania was southbound at about 8:15 a.m. when he took his eyes off the road to look down at a GPS map program on an electronic device. Police say Sipler's tractor-trailer traveled on the right shoulder, drove through a snow pile, and hit a fence at the Blue Dog RV dealership. The cab hit the backs of three travel trailers and a utility pole. 

A Blue Dog RV employee said three travel trailers were total losses and a fourth was damaged.

Police continue their investigation.
