Southport MVA sends two to hospital

Two children were uninjured and their driver taken to Vancouver General Hospital after a two-car collision on Thursday morning in Alberni.

Two people were taken to hospital after a two car collision in Port Alberni’s Southport area on Thursday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the corner of Argyle Street and Fourth Avenue at 11:30 a.m., RCMP Watch Commander Brady Mathison said. There, crews found the severely damaged wrecks of Ponitac and Toyota model vehicles.

Drivers were removed from both vehicles and taken to West Coast General Hospital. The driver of the Pontiac was transported to Vancouver General Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Two children who were passengers in the Pontiac were uninjured. The driver of the Toyota was released.

According to Mathison, the driver of the north-bound Toyota didn’t see the oncoming east-bound Pontiac when exiting onto Argyle Street from Fourth Avenue.”There was a lot of damage to both cars. They were undriveable and had to be towed from the scene,” Mathison said.
