There was a two-vehicle accident on Hwy. 35 in front of Tim Hortons in Minden earlier today (July 14).

Minden fire chief, Shain Duda, said a car was pulling into the Tim Hortons, and a red truck was travelling south on hwy. 35 when the two vehicles collided.

He said two people were taken to hospital with minor injuries. He had no update on their condition.

Hwy. 35 southbound lanes were closed to allow fire, ambulance, and police to work safely.

Both vehicles were taken and the highway re-opened.

“The Minden Hills fire firefighters did an amazing job making the scene safe to work, stabilizing the vehicles, and extracting one person to allow paramedics to do their job with injuries,” Duda said.
