JUDE’S POINT -- Two people were transported to hospital by ambulance Friday morning following a two-vehicle collision at the Highway 12 and Jude’s Point Road intersection, West Prince RCMP report.
Const. Pierre Deschambault said the injuries to the driver and a passenger of a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix are not believed to be serious. The driver and lone occupant of a 2008 Ford Escape did not require any medical attention.
Const. Deschambault said the Ford Escape was stopped at the end of the Jude’s Point Road. As the driver started to proceed forward he noticed the Grand Prix approaching along Highway 12 and he tried to accelerate out of the way but the road surface was slippery.
The Pontiac t-boned the Ford on the driver’s side. The officer said he believes the side impact curtain in the Ford protected the driver from injury in the 10:30 a.m. collision.
Tignish Fire Department and West-Isle Towing assisted police and paramedics at the scene.
Deschambault said both vehicles sustained damages beyond repair.
