Two Crashes Cause Injuries In Owen Sound

Charges have been laid against three people following two noon-hour crashes in Owen Sound.

The Owen Sound Police Service says on Thursday just before 12pm, a pick-up truck ran a red light at 9th St. and 2nd Ave. W, colliding with a small sedan.  The collision caused extensive damage to the sedan.

A 90-year-old passenger of the sedan sustained minor injuries and was treated in hospital.

A 19-year-old man has been charged with failing to stop for a red light.

Police say the second crash occurred shortly after 12pm, when an SUV attempted to make a left turn into a Zehrs driveway at 1150 16th St. E.  The SUV was struck by a small sedan travelling westbound in the curb lane. Both vehicles sustained serious damages.

Police say a passenger of the sedan was not wearing a seatbelt during the crash struck her head on the windshield, cracking the windshield and cutting her forehead. She was taken to hospital and was later released. She has been charged for not wearing her seatbelt.

The driver of the SUV, a 61-year-old woman from the Collingwood area, has been charged with failing to yield to through traffic.
