There appear to be no serious injuries following a three-vehicle accident at the intersection of Columbus Drive and Thorburn Road in St. John's that occured about 5:30 p.m. this evening.  

Eastbound traffic on Columbus Drive is blocked, but the scene is being cleared by tow trucks.  

One vehicle is on the sidewalk after crashing into a guardrail, and the two other vehicles are in the intersection.   

All three vehicles appear to have sustained moderate damage.

This is a corrected version.

Geographic location: Columbus Drive, Topsail Road

    I was involved in the accident and there was no texting involved and we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. So please stop assuming!

    Check the cell phone calls for all involved to narrow down how many were texting.

    Looks like you have the address wrong - the pictures show the intersection of Columbus Drive and THORBURN Road, not Topsail Road.

    I'm pretty sure that you guys have the location wrong. It happened at the intersection of Columbus Dr. and Thorburn Rd. I know this because I was caught in the traffic jam that resulted from the accident and watched them loading up all the vehicles involved.

    Isn't that the intersection of Columbus Drive and Thorburn Road?

    This accident was at the intersection of Columbus Drive and Thorburn Road and Prince Phillip Drive, not Topsail Road.

    I see that in some jurisdictions the police are now allowed to impound the cell phone of anyone involved in a traffic accident to find out if they were texting or talking at the time. I wonder how many of the "accidents" we around town these days are the result of such foolishness.

    There is a typo here. It was not at the intersection of Columbus Drive and Topsail Road. It was the intersection of Columbus Drive and Thorburn Road.
