A two-vehicle collison Wednesday afternoon sent two people to hospital for “precautionary reasons,” according to Brandon police.
Shortly before 2 p.m., a grey Ford pickup crashed into the back of a blue Chevrolet Cobalt near the intersection of Sixth Street and Pacific Avenue.
“It was a minor rear-end collision,” Const. Dana McCallum said. “Two people were transported to hospital purely for precautionary reasons.”
A witness said the driver of the car and a passenger, a young boy, were stabilized and put in the back of two separate ambulances.
“The young boy was pretty shook up by the whole thing,” the witness said.
While he saw the aftermath, the man said all he heard was a loud crash at the corner, and he turned to look.
McCallum said no charges were laid in the incident, which temporarily caused traffic problems on Pacific.
