SOUTH STORMONT – Some could call it an Easter miracle.
A family of four – including two young children – escaped unharmed after a violent rollover on Highway 401.
Tire marks on the asphalt of the westbound lanes of the highway show where the Nissan Maxima violently swerved from the passing lane across a lane of traffic before rolling several times in the ditch.
It happened around 6:30 p.m. just west of the Post Road overpass.
Distracted driving is believed to be a factor in the crash.
Traffic was down to a single lane for a short while for a police investigation and to allow Metro Towing to pull the wrecked car out of the ditch.
The female driver is charged with careless driving and driving while disqualified.
