Motorists were slowed heading through Brazil Wednesday after a two-vehicle collision halted traffic.

At approximately 9:30 a.m., Brazil City Police Department Sgt. Mark Loudermilk responded to the accident, which took place at the intersection of United States 40 (National Avenue) and Franklin Street.

According to Loudermilk, Marty Green, Cloverdale, was driving west on National Avenue when the brakes failed on his 2000 Pontiac Grand Am, causing him to hit a 2003 Chevy Silverado, driven by Michael Thompson, rural Brazil.

Also responding to the accident were the Brazil City Fire Department and TransCare.

Loudermilk said Green informed him his brakes failed, causing him to run the light and T-bone into Thompson's truck.

There were no injuries as a result of the accident, but debris in the street caused traffic to slow.

However, by 10:15 a.m., traffic flow was back to normal.

Loudermilk said there was minimal damage to the truck while the Grand Am was totaled.
