Five-vehicle crash one of may

Among the 28 collisions in the city over the snowy weekend was a five-vehicle crash Friday that caused police officers to close Gordon Street for five hours while they investigated.
The collision happened north of Stone Road at around 5 p.m., when the driver of a pickup truck suffered an unknown episode, a news release said. The northbound truck crossed the centre line, hitting four southbound vehicles.
Eight people were taken to hospital with minor injuries and three of the vehicles were demolished, the release said.
Local police also dealt with 20 collisions on Wednesday, and they are recommending drivers take it slow in the snow.
Everything takes longer on a slippery surface, including starting from a standstill, stopping and changing lanes, a news release said. Even vehicles with all-wheel drive will have trouble stopping, it said.
