On Tuesday evening, Brandon Fire and Emergency Services and Brandon Police Service responded to the intersection of 9th Street and Louise Avenue for a two-vehicle crash.

A car and an SUV collided in the intersection, which caused the SUV to run up onto a sidewalk and sheer off a fire hydrant. There was significant damage to both vehicles. The occupants of the SUV were injured and needed to be extricated by firefighter/paramedics. 


Fire crews used cutter and spreader extrication tools to remove the driver’s side door and to get the driver out onto a stretcher. It did not appear that anyone in the car was injured.


The intersection was closed for a period of time to allow for the extrication, and tow crews responded to clean up the wrecked vehicles.
