Traffic was delayed in the area for over an hour while the scene was cleared. The driver of the Dodge, a 28-year-old Owen Sound man, has been charged with making an unsafe turn.

The third collision occurred at around 12:51pm, in the area of 8th Ave. E and 16th St. E.  A 2010 Jeep was stopped on 16th St. E waiting to make a left turn and was rear-ended by a 2010 Nissan. No injuries were reported but the Nissan had to be towed from the scene.

The driver of the Nissan, a 54-year-old Owen Sound woman, has been charged with careless driving.
