Emergency lights flashing and stopped on Great Northern Road are not an unfamiliar sight.

Typical intersections to see collisions include Great Northern Road at Second Line, Northern and even McNabb.

However, the light which gives everyone the most concern, even though not active yet, had it’s first collision this afternoon around 3 p.m..

Paramedics and Sault Police attended to the light known as “Pino’s Light” to most, for a two-vehicle collision where one vehicle appeared to rear-end another.

There was no word on injuries or damage estimate. Great Northern Road was backed up more than usual, with the slowdown starting as far back as Drive-In Road at one point.

  1. I believe we all can recognize a mean person when we see one.
    I know that what I’m going to say it’s not polite, but it’s practical.
    I had two accounts with RBofC and I didn’t close the accounts, I just deposit twenty dollars and keep the accounts frost.
    There are many stores selling foods, meat, fruits and vegetables, then, remove your patronage from those that you think are not socially responsible, we are free to favor any store in town… or across the river as a fact.
    Always remember, when shopping across the river, you can only bring back the equivalent to $ 20 in dairy products.
    Every neighbourhood, every city, is planned, built and from the moment people start to move in, the sites start a slow and long death and if you disagree, look around the centre of it all!

  2. City Hall was warned by social media long before the lights became active. If you look back at the corner of Gore and Albert, they refuse to do what the citizens of our once proud city suggest. They know all and have deaf ears to us. Thatguy, you hit the nail right on the head when you said, “I guess when you’re Pino, and wave enough money at that idiot we call a mayor, you could do anything. Next on the docket, we put an intersection exactly three foot 2 inches past the great northern/northern intersection!.” You failed to mention the Staff.

  3. It is not a surprise as we just keep conception our streets & intersections. We need to think before we change thinks. Also people need to drive a lot safer then they are now doing.

  4. The accident had nothing to do with the intersection. The guy got rear-ended while waiting in line at the Second line light. Both cars were going in the same direction.

    I’m not sure why Sault online is always trying to stir up trouble where there is none.

    Clickbait i guess.

  5. I don’t know what genius would have thought the placement of those lights was remotely a good idea.
    Does the city even plan, or is it always justseat of the pants management?

  6. Police, firetrucks, medics, and tow trucks should all sit on that corner. That’s the stupidest spot for an intersection. There will be an accident a day there. I guess when you’re Pino, and wave enough money at that idiot we call a mayor, you could do anything. Next on the docket, we put an intersection exactly three foot 2 inches past the great northern/northern intersection!
