Two peo­ple sent to hospi­tal

Valley Journal Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

He said the two peo­ple trav­el­ling in that car were un­in­jured. Fire­fight­ers needed to as­sist them out of the ve­hi­cle be­cause it was un­sta­ble.

The sec­ond call came at 4:53 p.m. and in­volved two ve­hi­cles col­lid­ing near the Nova Sco­tia Power pole stor­age fa­cil­ity.

“The roads are ex­tremely slip­pery,” said May­nard, who was reached at the sec­ond ac­ci­dent.

May­nard said both ve­hi­cles in­volved in the sec­ond ac­ci­dent re­ceived “heavy dam­age” but there was no en­trap­ment.

“It was a two-ve­hi­cle side im­pact col­li­sion,” he said, not­ing it was be­tween a pas­sen­ger car and a truck.

“The two peo­ple in the car were trans­ported by EHS to hospi­tal. I don’t know the sta­tus on their in­juries – they were loaded (in the am­bu­lance) when we got here.”

He urged mo­torists to “drive with ex­treme cau­tion.”

Ch­ester Road, which is also called High­way 14, was re­duced to one lane while fire­fight­ers at­tended the scene and RCMP in­ves­ti­gated.

May­nard said it’s been a busy night so far and he was pleased with the re­sponse of the var­i­ous county fire de­part­ments.

“Be­cause of the road con­di­tions, we put a pumper from Hantsport in Fal­mouth to stage and Brook­lyn sent one to stage out at the 101 at the Three Mile Plains exit. So we were al­ready geared up to head this way when the sec­ond call came in, which was good be­cause we kind of sus- pected there might be an­other ac­ci­dent.”
