Collision involving limousine sends several to hospital

A collision on Kenmount Road late Saturday evening sent about a dozen people to hospital.

Emergency crews were called to the east end of Kenmount Road at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday after the collision, between a limousine and a minivan. Reports from the scene indicate the limousine was traveling westbound on Kenmount Road when it struck the van, which was exiting a parking lot. The impact caused the minivan to strike the limo a second time, shattering one of its windows.

The limousine reportedly had fifteen occupants in the passenger area; most of whom went to hospital. No injuries were considered serious. It was unknown at the time if either driver was transported to hospital.

Damage to both vehicles was extensive. The collision forced police to close a portion of the busy roadway for over two hours until the collision was investigated and the damaged vehicles were removed from the scene.

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.
