No se­ri­ous in­juries in Allen Street col­li­sion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND - BY STEPHEN BRUN stephen.brun@the­guardian.pe.ca Twit­ter.com/stephend­brun

There were no se­ri­ous in­juries Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon from a two-ve­hi­cle crash on Allen Street, the same in­ter­sec­tion where two cars col­lided just two days prior.

Char­lot­te­town po­lice re­sponded to the col­li­sion shortly af­ter 2 p.m. at the in­ter­sec­tion of Allen and Up­per Prince streets.

The cir­cum­stances are still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, but po­lice say it ap­pears a 1995 Chevro­let Lu­mina van turn­ing off Up­per Prince Street failed to yield to a 2012 Toy­ota Tun­dra trav­el­ling along Allen Street.

Is­land EMS also at­tended the scene and treated one woman for mi­nor in­juries.

On Mon­day, an­other twove­hi­cle crash at the same in­ter­sec­tion re­sulted in both cars com­ing to rest in the park­ing lot of Up­street Craft Brew­ing.

A wit­ness told The Guardian one of the ve­hi­cles ran two stop signs on Up­per Prince Street be­fore crash­ing into the front of an­other ve­hi­cle on Allen Street.

De­spite two crashes in the same place in the span of three days, po­lice said there are no con­cerns about the in­ter­sec­tion be­ing a dan­ger. They said more vis­i­tors can lead to more traf­fic and more ac­ci­dents dur­ing the sum­mer.
