Two people were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown with non-life threatening injuries when a van and a car collided at the intersection of Water Street Parkway and Grafton Street East in Charlottetown Sunday afternoon.
A Charlotteteown Police Services officer at the scene said it is likely that charges will be laid in the accident that occured about 1:30 p.m.
The force of the collision pushed the van up and onto the top of a snowbank.
Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to pry open the van so Island EMS paramedics could get at and remove the injured. Traffic was lined up in all directions as the rescue crews worked.
Two dogs travelling in the van bolted in fear, but were quickly rounded up and placed in police vehicles until officials from the P.E.I Humane Society arrived.
