Two women's vehicles collided on Pioneer Ave on Wednesday morning in Agassiz.  While the crash had enough force to twist one vehicle's front end so badly both front doors wouldn't open, no one was seriously injured in the crash.

Staff from the Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart were quick to respond to the crash, which happened just outside their window. Two staff attended immediately, helping each of the women by moving one car off the road, and assisting the other with getting out of her car through a rear door.

Shortly after, Agassiz fire crews, police and ambulance all responded.
