Owen Sound | by Claire McCormack  

Police say no one was seriously injured.

Owen Sound Police responded to three collisions in two hours on Sunday.

Police say just after 2 in the afternoon, two vehicles collided in the intersection of 4th Avenue West and 19th Street.  Police say a west bound vehicle stopped at 4th Avenue before proceeding into the intersection and colliding with a south bound vehicle. The driver of the west bound vehicle was charged with careless driving.

Then at about 2:45 p.m., police responded to 2nd Avenue West and 9th Street West regarding a 2-vehicle collision on one of the detour routes.
Police were told by witnesses two vehicles turning right from 9th Street West onto 2nd Avenue West  apparently encroached on each other's lanes and collided. There were no injuries and minor damage to the vehicles. Police are asking drivers to use extra caution while moving through the new detour routes.

Then at about 4:15 p.m., police say there was another crash on 10th Street West and 3rd Avenue West between a cyclist and a car.

Police say three cyclists were east bound on 10th Street West, the first bike went through the intersection on an amber light while the second cyclist was slowing down to a stop.  

The third cyclist continued through the intersection against a red light colliding with a south bound vehicle.  

The cyclist sustained some minor scrapes but did not require medical attention, police say his bicycle wasn't as lucky.  The cyclist was charged with failing to stop for a red light.
