T-bone crash causes dam­ages

One driver taken to hos­pi­tal, two ve­hi­cles dam­aged in Sun­day crash

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

A late model Nissan Sentra and an older model Dodge Dakota quar­ter-ton truck are be­lieved to be write-offs fol­low­ing a two-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion Sun­day in Bloom­field.

West Prince RCMP Cpl. Scott Lun­dri­gan said the Sentra was trav­el­ling east on Route 2 when the driver of the west­bound Dakota at­tempted to make a left turn onto the Du­var Road, re­sult­ing in the car T-bon­ing the truck.

Lun­dri­gan said the truck’s driver in­di­cated he didn’t see the car ap­proach­ing as he made his turn.

The of­fi­cer noted there is a bit of a crest in the high­way ap­proach­ing the T-in­ter­sec­tion.

The truck ended up in the ditch and the car stopped on the high­way.

Po­lice, Is­land EMS and O’Leary Fire Depart­ment re­sponded to the scene.

The driver of the truck was ex­tracted from his ve­hi­cle on a back­board and trans­ported to hos­pi­tal to be checked over. He was sub­se­quently re­leased. The driver of the car, its lone oc­cu­pant, es­caped in­jury when the airbag de­ployed.
