A Cadil­lac crashed be­tween two build­ings on Wa­ter Street in Car­bon­ear on the af­ter­noon of June 5.

The RCMP, Car­bon­ear Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment and the lo­cal am­bu­lance all re­sponded to a call around 4:30 p.m. re­gard­ing an ac­ci­dent at the end of Bond Street.

The car had veered off the road, land­ing in an empty plot of land be­tween Honda Town and an apart­ment build­ing on Wa­ter Street.

The RCMP were un­able to con­firm the cause of the ac­ci­dent.

On­look­ers said the ve­hi­cle was air­borne for quite some time be­fore hit­ting the ground, leav­ing a small crater where it landed.

The driver, a mid­dle-aged man, was the only pas­sen­ger in the ve­hi­cle.

The RCMP told The Com­pass they were un­able to con­firm the se­ri­ous­ness of the driver’s in­juries but said they seemed to be mi­nor.

RCMP could not con­firm whether or not the ve­hi­cle lost its brakes as it drove down Bond Street.
