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 sent to hospital following night-time collisions

Two people were taken to hospital following two separate incidents on the roads in St. John’s on Saturday night.

At about 10:30 p.m. emergency crews responded to a collision on Elizabeth Avenue at Paton Street. The driver of an eastbound vehicle struck a pedestrian who was crossing the road near the intersection. The pedestrian was taken to hospital with injuries that were described as non life-threatening. The force of the collision caused damage to the front end of the car and to its windshield.

Around midnight crews were summoned to the Outer Ring Road following a single-vehicle crash. The driver of an eastbound vehicle lost control of their car near the Aberdeen Avenue exit. The car entered the ditch and struck a mound of rocks, causing significant damage to the vehicle. The driver was taken to hospital with injuries not believed to be serious. Roads were wet in heavy wind and rain at the time of the crash.

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.

Roughly ten minutes later emergency crews were called to a second collision, at the intersection of Old Pennywell Road and Brier Avenue. Two vehicles had collided in a t-bone collision, which caused significant damage to both vehicles. Paramedics arrived to assess the occupants of both cars, but were not required to take anyone to hospital.

Roads were dark in heavy rain at the time of both collisions.

Two people were taken to hospital on Saturday afternoon following a collision in Paradise that snapped a utility pole.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Paradise Road and Stormont Street shortly after 1 p.m. following reports of a two-vehicle collision. When personnel arrived they found two vehicles with significant damage. The collision between the two cars caused one of them to crash into a nearby utility pole, which cracked the pole in two places. Crews were forced to close the road in the area, as the pole was partially suspended by high voltage lines.
