BLOOMFIELD -- No one was injured in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 2 in Bloomfield late Sunday morning.

RCMP Const. Jamie Jefferies from West Prince RCMP said an SUV was stopped on Highway 2 waiting for oncoming vehicles to go by so that it could make a left-hand turn onto the Gard Road when it was struck from behind.

He said light snow contributed to the collision as, just before the collision a westbound tractor trailer went by, blowing snow across the highway and temporarily obscuring the SUV from an eastbound Nissan Sentra.

By the time visibility cleared it was too late for the driver of the Sentra to avoid collision and it rear-ended the SUV. Damage to the two vehicles was in excess of $2,000.

    If this is Prince County's attempt at getting a 30 million tax dollar highway boondoggle, good luck. Then again, you've got to wonder if the sky's the limit on how many times Islanders can be planb'd.
