“There’s a huge amount of trauma because the body was struck by several vehicles.”

A man’s body was discovered Wednesday night around midnight on the 401 in Oshawa.

A tow truck driver travelling Eastbound on the 401 near Stevenson Road made the discovery at 11:30 and contacted police.

OPP Sgt Kerry Schmidt says the investigation continues.

“We don’t have any reason to believe that foul play is involved.  But the investigation is on-going and we’re working on trying to identify this person so we can notify family and continue the investigation.”

The 401 was closed to traffic until about 2:30 am while Durham Police and OPP investigated.

The cause of death will be part of the autopsy that the coroner’s office will be conducting today or Friday.
