A multiple car pile up on St. Patrick’s Day near Springdale sent two people to hospital.
Traffic was reportedly slowing about 3 km east of South Brook on the TCH due to whiteout conditions. A tractor trailer travelling eastbound was unable to stop in time to avoid colliding with the vehicle in front, causing a chain reaction of collisions involving five vehicles. One male was taken to hospital with serious injuries. A female driver came upon the scene and pulled over to the side of the road to help. Her vehicle was struck and she was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The TCH was shut down for approximately 3 hours while emergency services worked to clear the scene and get the injured to the hospital.
