CORNWALL – A section of Pitt Street was closed for about an hour Tuesday night after a crash between a car and a pickup truck.
The collision between a Toyota Corolla and a Ford F-150 pickup happened shortly after 6 p.m. at the intersection of Fifth Street West and Pitt Street.
Cornwall firefighters and police were on scene and quickly shut down Pitt Street from Fourth to Sixth Streets.
A paramedic in a rapid response unit from Cornwall-SDG Paramedic Services checked over people in both vehicles but no one was transported from the scene.
A witness said the pickup truck had run a red light and the car wasn’t able to avoid a collision with the truck. “Both spun but the truck did a bit more spinning,” the witness said. The truck ended up facing the wrong way on Fifth Street West – a one-way street.
The car has extensive damage while truck appeared to have moderate damage to a rear quarter panel.
A police investigation is ongoing.
