An unknown prankster tampered with the Carling Avenue on-ramp to Highway 417 contruction site by moving construction barrels surrounding the area.
According to the Ottawa Police Service, the barrels used to block-off access to the construction site had been moved aside, giving drivers access to the area.
The incident happened Saturday evening.
In a tweet, the officer states the prankster's actions could've easily taken a turn for the worse.
This is not funny. Someone moved the construction barrels at a closed on-ramp (Carling) then watched as vehicles went into a live construction zone placing those motorists in danger. If you see someone doing this, please call us. Someone could’ve been hurt. 🚔 #OttawaOPP @OPP_ER pic.twitter.com/D0Og3T2jvL— QueenswayCop (@QueenswayCop) October 13, 2019
