MOUNT ALBION - Two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash on the Trans-Canada Highway in Mount Albion Tuesday night.

RCMP at the scene said the extent of the injures is minor and that paramedics in two Island EMS ambulances were on the scene to treat the injured, who were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Firefighters from the Crossroads fire department also assisted. 

RCMP have since issued a statement saying that it appears that a west bound pick up truck lost control and crossed lanes and collided with an oncoming car in front of the Irving gas station. The investigation continues and it is not known if charges will be laid. 

It happened approximately 6:30 p.m. and the highway remained opened at the scene, but traffic was down to one lane.

    I am not trying to start an argument or anything but what exactly is wrong with this stretch of road. I have driven it literally hundreds of times and find it no better or worse than any other stretch of road on PEI. The drivers that pull out of that gas station into traffic is another issue but it doesn't have anything to do with the road just rotten drivers.

      Word. If it were dangerous we'd not drive it. If it were dangerous we'd fix it. Expect it to be PlanB'd sometime anyway. Right around vote-buyin', back-scratchin' or patronage pay-back time.

    Thankfully everyone is ok but for heavens sake, FIX THIS ROAD! There has been more then enough accidents and deaths on this stretch of the highway.
