This was the scene at the intersection of Pine Bud Avenue and Bonaventure Avenue following a two-vehicle accident early Sunday evening in St. John's.
The front section of a car caught fire following a two-vehicle accident early Sunday evening in St. John’s.
It was a white Toyota Camry that was on fire following the accident. It was left facing south on Bonaventure Avenue directly in front of where the street intersects Pine Bud Avenue.
A witness at the scene said another person attempted to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher prior to the St. John’s Regional Fire Department’s arrival. The fire department subsequently doused the car with fire suppressing foam.
There were no reports of serious injuries. One man was taken to hospital for observation, according to a spokesman for the fire department.
The second vehicle involved in the accident was a grey Ford Fusion. The car had come to a stop facing north in the front yard of a home on Pine Bud Avenue.
Fire department members appeared to be attempting to silence the horn of the grey car when The Telegram arrived at the scene of the accident shortly after 6:45 p.m. It was successfully silenced approximately 20 minutes later.
Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officers were also at the scene. They set up pylons to force traffic on both streets to turn around.
