A car accident at about 3:30 PM on Monday afternoon stopped just short of crashing into a store on Kingston Avenue.
Witnesses said a white van collided with an SUV, sending the van careening onto the sidewalk on the corner of Kingston Avenue near Crown Street.
Safety barriers at the corner held the van from crashing through the store window of Apple Drugs, it appears from photos of the crash. Thankfully no pedestrians were struck in the crash.
The driver of the van was transported to the hospital, witnesses said.
The driver of the other vehicle was treated at the scene.
