Two people suffered minor injuries after a collision in downtown Owen Sound this morning.

A fire department official says crews were called to the scene at the intersection of 2nd Avenue East and 8th Street East at 9:43 a.m.

A pick-up truck and car both suffered heavy damage. The truck ended up rolled over on its side, near the sidewalk in front of the former Legate Furniture location.

The driver of the car was shaken up but appeared to avoid serious injury.
