Car flips on Fourth Street
Two people were taken away in ambulances after a car flipped over onto its roof on Fourth Street in New Westminster Friday afternoon.
The single-vehicle accident happened on a steep incline between Royal Avenue and Agnes Street about 1:15 p.m. Shattered glass could be seen all over the sidewalk, road and grass where the Honda Civic came to rest underneath the first floor windows of an apartment block.
Police said the vehicle was going down the hill in the wrong lane, hit a support wire for a utility pole causing it to flip onto its roof. The NWPD also said both occupants of the vehicle suffered minor injuries. The cause remains under investigation but alcohol isn't believed to be a factor.
