(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A collision that occurred at a busy highway intersection during the noon hour has been brought to our attention this afternoon.
The incident occurred in the northbound left turning lane of Highway 61 at the intersection with the Harbour Expressway.
Two vehicles were involved, a black SUV and a blue SUV. From our observations produced by viewing the photo, it seems the black SUV has collided with the rear of the blue SUV in the left turning lane.
Although Superior North EMS paramedics were on scene, our assumption is that no serious injuries stemmed from the incident. We cannot rule out that there may have been a medical issue which sparked the fender-bender.
TRCCTB.COM would like to remind everyone that driving requires your full attention, and to keep your electronic devices such as smartphones and the vehicles car stereo, out of your mind and not to use them while driving, even at intersections.
Distracted driving is just as dangerous, if not more dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol.
