A 2 to 4 vehicle collision closed McBride Street on Wednesday

Three vehicles were involved in a collision that closed down McBride Street on Wednesday afternoon.

One of the vehicles was travelling southbound down the hill and it collided with two vehicles going northbound, said Sgt. Dave Uppal of the Prince Rupert RCMP. The police received the report at around 4:50 p.m. that a motor vehicle incident had occurred on McBride Street and Eight Avenue.

“Some of the occupants were taken to the hospital for precautionary measures. Injuries at this time do not appear to be life threatening,” Uppal said.

The incident is still under investigation and the RCMP are encouraging anyone who witnessed the collision, who haven’t already given their statements, to come forward.
