Both the car and pickup truck had significant damage.

The southbound lanes of King Street East were partially closed, with just one lane open, while Deer Ridge Drive was also closed between King Street and Grand Hill Drive. Both have since reopened to traffic.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances of the crash and said charges are anticipated. Top Stories
