Collision in Mount Pearl results in no injuries

There were no injuries reported following a two-vehicle collision in Mount Pearl on Saturday evening.

Crews were called to the intersection of Old Placentia Road and Richard Nolan Drive at about 8:45 p.m. following the crash, which left two vehicles significantly damaged. The occupants of both vehicles were assessed by paramedics, but did not require transport to hospital.

Traffic was slowed in the area until the scene could be cleared. First responders’ duties were complicated by motorists attempting to drive through the scene despite the presence of emergency vehicles and safety cones blocking lanes of travel.

Two pedestrians sent to hospital following separate collisions

Two separate collisions in the centre of St. John’s on Saturday evening sent two pedestrians to hospital, neither with life-threatening injuries.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Crosbie Road and Terra Nova Road at about 6:30 p.m. after a pedestrian was struck while crossing the street. Glare from oncoming headlights is reported to have been a contributing factor as the driver of a sedan failed to notice the individual on a crosswalk.

Paramedics took the injured person to hospital with what were described as non life-threatening injuries. The vehicle involved sustained damage to its front end and windshield. Police closed the road for close to an hour as they investigated.

Shortly before 8 p.m., a second collision occurred a short distance away at the intersection of Columbus Drive and Old Pennywell Road. An individual using a kick scooter was struck while crossing the road. Paramedics assisted the rider to a waiting ambulance, taking them to hospital with injuries not believed to be serious.

Multiple crashes keep crews busy and send two to hospital

Emergency crews were kept busy in St. John’s Sunday evening responding to three motor vehicle crashes in a little over an hour’s time.

The first occurred at the intersection of Prince Philip Drive and Allandale Road, one of St. John’s’ most dangerous intersections. Crews were called shortly after 7:30 p.m. and arrived to find two vehicles with significant damage following a t-bone collision. Paramedics assessed the occupants of both vehicles, however there were no injuries reported. Traffic was slowed in the area for over half an hour as the scene was cleared.

A second crash happened only minutes after the first. Crews responded to Heavy Tree Road, where it meets Robert E. Howlett Memorial Drive, following a t-bone collision that caused extensive damage to the two vehicles involved. Paramedics took two people to hospital, including a child, both as a precautionary measure.

Shortly after 8:30 p.m. emergency personnel were called to the Team Gushue Highway following a single-vehicle crash. The incident happened in the northbound lanes of the highway at the exit to Brier Avenue. The driver of a sedan lost control of the vehicle, causing it to leave the roadway. A lengthy skid mark could be seen on the road, leading to where the car left the highway. The vehicle came to a stop on an embankment approximately 25 metres from where it left the shoulder. There were no injuries reported.
