Four people were injured in a two-car collision late Friday morning at a busy intersection on Delaware Avenue, Buffalo fire dispatchers reported.
The accident occurred shortly after 11:15 a.m. at Delaware and Bryant Street, officials said.
The four people were taken away by ambulance for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash. The nature of the injuries could not immediately be determined.
The intersection remained closed to traffic until early afternoon.
In August 2014 a three-car accident that flipped a Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority police car temporarily closed the same intersection during morning rush hour.
That accident occurred at 7:45 a.m. Aug. 8, when an NFTA officer en route to a call and traveling south on Delaware collided with another vehicle traveling eastbound on Bryant. The impact caused the patrol car to flip onto its passenger side and strike a third vehicle.
The NFTA officer, who was answering a call of a disorderly bus passenger, was removed from the vehicle through the broken windshield.
The officer was taken to Erie County Medical Center, where she was treated and released.
