The woman has no injuries, alcohol was not a factor. No charges are being laid. She had swerved to miss a rock on the road, hit a curb with one wheel and lost control of the vehicle.
Original Story 10:15 a.m. - An unidentified 29-year-old woman was taken to hospital following a single vehicle rollover on Lower Glenrosa shortly before 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Witnesses say the vehicle's brakes locked up before it hit the ditch.
"I was sitting in the driveway. I don't know why, but she just went sideways, hit that berm and rolled over," says Damian Abbate.
"When I got to the car there was airbag smoke and I thought there was a fire in the car so I asked her to lay on her back and pulled her out."
Abbate says the woman was in shock following the accident.
"She said she was pregnant and her hand hurt," says Abbate.
"She was already out of her seatbelt and on all fours on the roof when I got to her."
