PHOTOS: Emergency crews deal with rollover west of Ponoka

A motorist involved in a rollover had to be extricated from the vehicle late Tuesday night

Ponoka emergency crews were called to a rollover late Tuesday night.

At around 10 p.m. crews were called to a single vehicle rollover involving a young woman who was the lone occupant of the vehicle. Along with Ponoka RCMP and EMS, the Ponoka County East District Fire Department was called to extricate the woman who was trapped inside.

The woman was travelling on a gravel road just north of Highway 53.

It’s unclear the cause of the rollover or what type of injuries the woman sustained but it is believed they were relatively minor.

At the time, the sedan ended up on its roof and the woman was said to have been wearing her seatbelt.
