Reports at the scene indicate the Impala was travelling east in the west-bound lane when the collision occurred.

Three ambulances were on the scene, as well as a pair of fire trucks and RNC patrol cars. The female driver of the Mazda 3 escaped unharmed.

Traffic was delayed for a period of time due to the debris and damaged cars blocking the lane.

    Please learn to spell. Am I correct in assuming that when you're older, and claiming you're perfectly able to drive, we should just take your license anyway? I agree that there should be mandatory retesting and training after a certain age, but this is certainly not the case for all elderly folks. Half of the YOUNG people on the roads these days don't deserve a license.

    we're not going to "get" older folks off the road nor should we. most accidents are caused by young drivers, check out the stats for yourself, (you should have educated yourself before you set your discrimination to type) does that mean we should take people like you off the road?
