An 85-year-old man ran a stop sign at a notorious blind corner in Ansonia and plowed into a car Wednesday morning.
The man, who was driving a brown pickup truck, was not seriously injured.
The driver of the second car was also not seriously injured, police said.
Damage to both vehicles was heavy. The truck’s rear axle was ripped from the under carriage.
According to neighbors, the pickup truck ran the stop sign at Highland Avenue and collided with a car traveling up Hill Street.
The same neighbors — and a bunch of people on the Valley Indy’s Facebook page — said the intersection is terribly dangerous.
Neighbors initially said it appeared the 85-year-old man suffered a medical seizure prior to the wreck, but Ansonia police said a medical issue did not play a role in the wreck,
Frank’s LLC of Wakelee Avenue hauled the pickup truck from the scene.
Ansonia police, firefighters and ambulance crews all responded to the scene.
