HUNTER RIVER, P.E.I. —

A two-vehicle collision in front of the Hunter River Irving on Monday night sent one person to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 17-year-old driver of the other vehicle was charged under the Highway Traffic Act with operating a vehicle with bald tires and crossing a solid line. This vehicle struck the car driven by the 19-year-old. 

Sgt. Craig Eveleigh told The Guardian that Queens District RCMP received a call reporting the collision shortly after 9 p.m.

Eveleigh said it appears speed did play a factor, but he noted officers are still taking statements, and the matter is currently still under investigation.

“Neither alcohol nor drugs seem to be a factor in this collision,” he added.

Island EMS and the New Glasgow Fire Department responded along with the RCMP.

Eveleigh encouraged people to pay attention to the condition of their tires.

“Reduce your speed and drive accordingly,” he said.
