103 Accident

A man believed to be in his 20's was taken to hospital with undetermined injuries after a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 103. The accident happened over the noon hour yesterday. A sport-utility vehicle swerved to avoid another vehicle pulling onto the highway when the driver lost control and ended up in the ditch. It took about an hour to get the passenger out of the vehicle and into an ambulance. Traffic was tied up until around 2 o'clock. Hebb's Cross Firefighters reponded along with RCMP and Paramedics.
