Emergency crews responded to a vehicle rollover on the Charlottetown Bypass between St. Peter's Road and Brackley Point Road.

A white Grand Am left the highway just before 11:30 a.m. and landed on its roof, trapping the female driver inside.

    There was the same thing over the holidays on Lwr Malpeque Rd and an ambulance left the scene. Yet, it was not in the paper then.

    I am a female driver and even i can't deny that every 2nd or 3rd womam driving is on their cellphone. I doubt thats what happened here but it crazy how many young woman still don't get how dangerous it is to talk/text while driving. For anyone that wants to challenge what I say about woman drivers , take a drive around and watch for them. I bet it won't take long

      Yes woman driver….it is only the woman who don't get it….right……..thanks for helping our cause…..NOT! Women take the blame for enough in society…where we shouldn't….can we not do it here too please! Cell phones while driving is a HUMAN problem…not a gender or a race problem.

    Uh, I am a woman, and I don't text while driving, or answer my phone while driving. I drive a car with my two children in the backseat! I however see men and women on their phones while driving, this may have been a woman that was in this accident ... But the next news article up is two men who were in an accident!! Check your sexist remarks at the door, and no one says "gurl" anymore!

    Likely texting was the cause of this one! Gurls, yes GURLS love to text anywhere no-matter-what! I see it on-the-road all the time.
