10:15AM UPDATE: All lanes of the 401 have reopened.
OPP and others remain on the scene of a fiery accident between two big rigs yesterday afternoon on the 401 between Deseronto Road and Highway 37.
The 2 drivers, who are not from the the Quinte area, were killed in the accident.
The 401 westbound, both lanes, remains closed between Highway 49, locally known as the Marysville Road, and the Shannonville Road until sometime this afternoon as the highway is being repaved.
And, only one lane of the 401 eastbound is open. It will likely be completely open sometime later this morning.
OPP say it appears the driver heading east with two big trailers veered into the median smashing into a westbound tractor trailer.
The identities of the drivers have not been released.
