COURTENAY, B.C- Two cars were left with minor damage after a crash in downtown Courtenay today.
The collision took place around 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of 5th Street and Fitzgerald Avenue. A red Toyota car had been headed south on Fitzgerald when a black four door sedan had been headed down 5th Street towards the downtown core.
Both vehicles collided, ending up in the intersection close to the south stop sign.
The driver of the black car was a young man, while the red Toyota was driven by an elderly woman. Neither sustained injuries.
The young man wasn’t sure if the new road design along the top part of 5th Street had been a factor in the crash, when asked by the MyComoxValleyNow.com newsroom.
Traffic was disrupted while first responders dealt with the scene.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
