CORNWALL – Emergency responders were kept busy today (Thursday) as they dealt with three separate crashes in the space of two-and-a-half hours.
The first happened around 10:30 a.m. at Fourth Street East and Baldwin Avenue where two vehicles were involved in a collision. Cornwall-SDG paramedics treated one driver for a minor injury.
Then, around 11:45 a.m., a crash at Seventh Street West and Augustus Street saw two occupants of one motor vehicle taken to hospital by Cornwall-SDG Paramedic Services with injuries.
The last crash happened around 12:48 p.m. when two vehicles collided at Brookdale Avenue and Water Street. One person was treated for minor injuries and Cornwall firefighters were on scene to clean up a fluid spill.
In all three cases, charges against one of the drivers in each of the two vehicle collisions were laid under the Highway Traffic Act, CPS spokesman Stephanie MacRae told Cornwall Newswatch.
Given the uptick in crashes today, police are urging you to be extra careful driving, cycling or walking.
