RCMP are reminding Islanders to drive safely after responding to a number of incidents Saturday, including an early morning collision between a Honda CR-V and a pickup truck on Rte. 19 in New Dominion.
The collision saw the CR-V, which was travelling from the Meadowbank direction, lose control coming down the hill entering the causeway into New Dominion and turn sideways. The oncoming pickup truck was unable to avoid the sideways CR-V and t-boned the vehicle.
Queens County RCMP and Island EMS responded to the collision, which occurred shortly after 7 a.m. The individual driving the CR-V was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with minor injuries.
The truck driver also later went to hospital for a cut on his hand.
"The roads were pretty icy," said a spokesperson with the RCMP.
The spokesperson added that RCMP had also attended to numerous minor incidents throughout the day. These included road conditions causing individuals to slide into the ditch and fender benders.
"Things of that nature," said the spokesperson. "Some people aren't slowing down (for the weather conditions)."
