Head-on vehicle collision sends one to hospital in Prince Rupert

·1 min read

One person was taken to hospital after a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of McBride St. and 2nd Ave. W. on Oct. 1.

The incident occurred at the stop sign near the BC Liquor Store, with emergency crews responding.

Firefighters had the intersection cleared in less than 15 minutes. They were assisted by RCMP and BC Ambulance.

The intersection was blocked off until a tow truck arrived at the scene to remove the vehicles.

“There were two people stopped and I guess this guy thought he was going and didn’t see [the other] guys and had a little head-on collision,” Dylan Sidoni, fire captain, said. “One person went to the hospital with sore neck pain.”

Sidoni said it was a fairly standard operation and did not require any tools though the batteries of the vehicles were disconnected.
