Hearing sketchy details of a major MVA on Perth Rd 107 by the little town of Shakespear (up by Stratford, NE of London). Unconfirmed reports of possibly a bus involved with as many as a dozen 10-45's. London news mentioned it at 6pm but had little to say other than they had crews enroute.

I would expect OPP to be on the Perth OPS12 talkgroup. Not sure about fire around there but I'm sure many local departments would be involved.

On City News a few min ago they mentioned that a rig hit a passenger vehicle, 10 dead, Air ambulance deployed and the permiers office was notified.

I've heard a loaded panel van vs an extended regular van. Impact was so severe they left the road and possibly hit a house.

I'm sitting on the Perth talkgroup and there is very little chatter. Likely lots of cell phones being used and face to face convo's.

I looked at the intersection in Google Street View and if it hit the house with the squared-off hedges, someone blew a stop sign very badly. :(

The house on the opposite side of the intersection is far enough away that I wouldn't think they would have gotten that far.

The crews that were on scene are going to need some support in the coming days and weeks, and I feel for them.

Van came to a stop up against the side of a blue house.

Initial reports are that the van ran the stop sign and the truck hit it at highway speed.
