At 8:45 pm last night (Feb 3), Charlottetown Police Services responded to a report of a collision at the intersection of Buchanan Drive and North River Road.
Witnesses described an SUV travelling south on North River Road and struck two traffic signal poles that were in the centre of the intersection.
The collision was forceful enough to dislodge both poles and the vehicle sustained significant front end damage which caused the air bags to be deployed. The female driver of the SUV did exit the vehicle momentarily but then got back in and drove away south on North River Road.
