Four people were transported to hospital following a two-vehicle accident in Carbonear early Monday afternoon.

Firefighters helped keep neckbraces in place while those involved in a two-vehicle accident in Carbonear Monday waited for stretchers to be brought out.

Fire chief Brent Sweeney told The Compass the four people were going to hospital as a precaution. They did not appear to be seriously injured.

The accident happened on Water Street. One car rear-ended another vehicle, and the fire department was called to the accident scene shortly after 12:30 p.m.

Multiple ambulances were required to transport the four people, and the fire department had to reroute traffic between Bannerman Street and O’Donovan’s Lane while emergency crews attended to the scene.

    It is time for the Town to step up with the RCMP and start some serious road checks on the speeding going on in this area...in the past year there have been several accidents on Water Street and it will be only a matter of time when someone is going be to killed. 40 km zone means 40 kilometers is the LIMIT, not 100 kms

    If there was no fault insurance here as in Nova Scotia, NO ambulances would be required. They only wanted them there to increase their insurance claim for fake neck injuries.
