Police did not provide any details about the crash in the social media posts but rather shared messages about road safety.

“Nipissing West OPP would like to remind motorists that, intersections can be a busy and unpredictable place,” reads the post.

“Taking a moment to check for oncoming traffic from all directions reduces the risk of collisions and helps keep everyone safe.”

Police provided the following tips and reminders about road and intersection safety:

  • Stop at the intersection line or crosswalk.
  • Look left, right, and left again for any approaching vehicles, pedestrians, or cyclists.
  • Proceed only if it is safe to do so.

“Taking a few extra seconds could prevent a potentially serious collision,” said police.

“Let us continue to look out for each other and make smart choices behind the wheel.”
