A two-door Pontiac and a Ford pickup truck were involved in the collision, according to police. An image of the crash site posted on social media by a traffic officer showed the pickup truck flipped over in the intersection.

No injuries were reported in the crash, Benoit said.

Another collision in the downtown area later on Monday morning, however, left a pedestrian with a broken leg, Ottawa paramedics said.

Police and paramedics were called to Bank Street and Gladstone Avenue around 7:45 a.m. after a car reportedly struck a woman in her 60s.

In addition to a broken leg, the woman suffered other minor injuries and was taken to the Ottawa Hospital’s trauma centre in stable condition, paramedic spokesperson Marc-Antoine Deschamps said.

No charges have been laid in that collision, Benoit confirmed.

Immediately after the incident, Gladstone Avenue was closed to westbound traffic, but it has since reopened.
