UPDATE: Two-vehicle crash leaves one car on sidewalk at Blanshard and Fort streets

No injuries reported after a car crashed into to Canada Post boxes

Two drivers were involved in a collision that left one vehicle on the sidewalk after careening into two mailboxes early Thursday morning.

Around 9:10 a.m. a Kia was heading north on Blanshard Street. The driver reported looking up and realizing the light was red.

That’s when the driver of a Volkswagen heading east up Fort Street struck him.

The Kia driver said he tried to aim for a tree on the sidewalk on the western side of Blanshard Street near Monk’s Office Supply, but lost control and ended up hitting two Canada Post boxes and a sign instead.

Both drivers walked away from the accident without apparent injury, though ambulances, fire trucks and police were on scene for some time.
