Cape Coral police say a multiple-vehicle crash is causing delays at the intersection of Santa Barbara Boulevard and Veterans Parkway.

Police say the crash was impacting traffic traveling northbound on Santa Barbara Blvd.

WINK News crews on the scene saw an ambulance on its side and a white SUV that was getting towed from the scene.

Police have not shared any information about the crash or if anyone was hurt.

Vincent Villa, from Cape Coral, said his brother was in one of the cars involved. He worries the intersection isn’t safe for drivers.

“Very dangerous. Many, many crashes in this just this corner,” Villa said.

Villa is not alone in that conviction. Others have commented on a Facebook post from Cape Coral police they’ve seen plenty of crashes at the same intersection.

Villa explained that his brother and sister-in-law were taken to Cape Coral Hospital.

He’s hopeful they’ll be ok and wants their experience to be a word of caution for others on the road.

“The idea of something happened to my brother, and my sister-in-law was like terrifying,” Villa said.
