CORNWALL – There were no injuries but one car had to be towed away after a two car crash at Brookdale Avenue and Fourteenth Street West Thursday afternoon.

Officers with the Canada Border Services Agency, who happened to be in the area, were on scene, as well as SD&G O.P.P. and the Cornwall RCMP just before 3:30 p.m.

The Cornwall fire department and Cornwall-SDG Paramedic Services were also there.

The cars ended up in the eastbound lanes of Fourteenth. Traffic on Brookdale was still able to get through the area.

“We just cleaned up the scene (of debris). I think one of them is drivable,” Cornwall Fire Services Platoon Chief John Irwin told Cornwall Newswatch.

The case was expected to be handled by the Collision Reporting Center.

Also at the crash scene, O.P.P. and RCMP officers had to run down the street to stop a minivan whose distracted driver drove over a road cone, dragging it an entire block. He was given a talking to by police.
