On January 22nd, 2011 at approximately 2:40 p.m., Leduc RCMP were alerted to a single vehicle Rollover on Hwy 814, near Township Road 484.  Leduc RCMP immediately attended the location.

When RCMP arrived at the scene of the collision, they observed a dark colored Dodge Caravan on it’s roof on the west side Hwy 814.

After further investigation, it is believed that the driver of the Caravan was traveling north bound on Hwy 814 when due to poor road conditions, lost control of the vehicle, crossed the center line and rolled the vehicle.  The vehicle landed on its roof approximately 50 meters away from the roadway.

Due to the abundance of snow, she was not able to get out of the vehicle.  The son of the complainant used a shovel to dig around the vehicle allowing the female occupants to escape.

The occupants from the vehicle, a 36 yr old female driver from Gwynne, AB, her 17 yr old daughter who was a passenger in the vehicle and their 6 month old dog were not injured in the collision.

Alcohol is not considered to be a factor in the collision.  No charges are being laid.
