Collision slows rush hour
Two people were sent to hospital Wednesday morning after two vehicles collided at Cooper and Harvey (Hwy. 97).
Cst. Steve Holmes says their preliminary investigation determined that two vehicles were heading in opposing directions on Cooper when one turned in front of the other, just before 8:40 a.m.
“From what we gather a black vehicle was heading northbound on Cooper and the grey vehicle was going southbound. It appears, at this point, that the black vehicle was attempting a left turn onto Harvey and the grey vehicle was going straight through and was struck by the black vehicle.”
Only one witness came forward to police and Holmes says they are still investigating factors like light sequencing to determine who was at fault.
The drivers, a woman in her 60's and a man in his 60's, were both taken to hospital for non-life threatening un-determined injuries, there were no passengers in the vehicles.
“It doesn't seem too serious at this point, but there is extensive damage to both vehicles and air-bags were deployed in both.”
Fire crews were on the scene for almost an hour cleaning the road while both vehicles were towed from the scene.
