A 73-year-old man was taken to hospital with minor injuries Monday (July 9), following a two-vehicle crash at Thrift Avenue and Stayte Road in White Rock.

Sgt. Manley Burleigh said the senior was travelling westbound on Thrift when his older-model Buick was struck on the passenger side around 11 a.m. by a Mercedes SUV that was southbound on Stayte.

According to independent witnesses, the Mercedes – bearing an 'N' in one window and driven by a 17-year-old girl – went through the intersection on a red light, Burleigh said.

At the scene, the young driver – clearly shaken by the incident – was reassured by police that the senior's injuries were not believed to be serious.
