CELPIP Writing an Email Task 1 – Car Accident Police Report
To whom it may concern,
The following is an account of the vehicle accident I witnessed on April 20th, 2020 at approximately 7:45 pm. The accident occurred at the intersection of George Street and Mason Avenue in Jumpton, Alberta.
At that time of the accident, I was walking northbound on George Street, towards the intersection with Mason Avenue. The road conditions were slick as an intense rainfall event had just passed through the city, however, it was not raining at that time.
Car A (a Ford F150) was on George Road (heading northbound), waiting in the intersection with Mason Street to turn left. When the traffic light turned red, Car A commenced turning left onto Mason Street. However, at the same time, Car B (a purple Corvette) who was travelling southbound on George Street, also entered the intersection on the red light.
Car A hit the left side of Car B. The drivers in both cars required medical attention from the ambulance that arrived on the scene shortly after. No other passengers or vehicles were involved in the accident.
I believe Car B was at fault for failing to stop at a red light.
