A Saturday morning collision on Highway 17 has closed all lanes between Batchawana and Wawa. 

The highway was still blocked off as of 10:15 this morning.

However, SooToday reached out to the Voyageur’s Lodge and Cookhouse, and they heard a transport carrying pigs was turned on its side just north of the restaurant.
