Another rollover, more lucky escapes

A 24-year-old Coleraine man and his female passenger escaped injury when the Commodore utility he was driving rolled over yesterday near the top of Muntham Hill, west of Coleraine.

Senior Constable Ian McNiven of Coleraine police said the accident occurred during wind and rain. 

He said it was also believed the condition of the vehicle’s tyres was a contributing factor to the accident. 

The vehicle was travelling west on the Glenelg Highway about 1.25pm when it slid out, hit an embankment and rolled over. It sustained moderate damage. 

Senior Constable McNiven said police inquiries were continuing.
