UPDATE, noon: A HAMILTON district woman in her 50s was lucky to avoid serious injury after she lost control and her ute rolled near the top of the Coleraine hill.
Hamilton police Sergeant Michael Vaughan said the woman was heading east along the Glenelg Highway about 8am when it was believed she over corrected in wet conditions.
"The old Toyota Hilux utility she was driving rolled down the hill 10 or 15 metres and was stopped by a tree," he said.

"The driver, a Hamilton district woman aged in her 50s, was very fortunate not to have been more seriously injured," he said.
