A two car collision at Columbia Avenue and 17th Street in Castlegar sent two to hospital on Wed. afternoon at 1 p.m.

“One vehicle was heading north bound on Columbia and stopped for the red light at 17th. The vehicle behind just simply never saw the red light and went into the back of the car that had stopped,” said Castlegar RCMP Cpl. Pollock. “Both cars needed to be towed. Airbags were deployed on the second vehicle, the vehicle that rear-ended the first. Both were taken to hospital with apparent minor injuries.”

Both vehicles, four door sedans, were single occupancy at the time of the accident.

The driver of the second vehicle was charged with Driving Without Consideration.
