CORNWALL – Everyone managed to walk away from a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Vincent Massey Drive and Tollgate Road Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters, police and paramedics were called to the intersection around 4 p.m. for a collision between a Ford Escape sport utility vehicle and a Kia Forte.

The force of the crash had flipped the SUV on its side, flattening a stop sign on the northwest corner of the intersection and narrowly missing a utility pole.
