A noontime accident in Corner Brook on Thursday was one of five that had occurred in the city since Wednesday.

And this one resulted in the driver of one of the vehicles, a 26-year-old Reidville woman, being issued a summary offence ticket under the Highway Traffic Act for failing to yield at an intersection.

The accident took place at the intersection of Reid Street and Central Street. The woman was driving a pickup truck that went through the stop sign and collided with an SUV on Central Street.

Both vehicles received substantial damage, but neither the woman charged or the woman driving the SUV were injured.

The Corner Brook Fire Department responded to the scene along with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and an ambulance from Western Health.

Firefighters placed an absorbent material around the vehicles as automotive fluids were leaking from them.
