CORNWALL – Three young men escaped serious injury after a pickup truck rollover in a Cornwall high school parking lot Tuesday morning.

Emergency responders were called to the lot on the west side of Cumberland Street, across from St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School, just before 11 a.m.

Three ambulances, two fire trucks, police cars and tow trucks were on scene where a Ford Ranger pickup was on its roof. The gravel portion of the lot where the truck had rolled had a number of circular skid marks.

Cornwall Police Service Const. Jason Mines told Cornwall Newswatch three “high school age students” were in the pickup.

Two of them were treated by Cornwall-SDG Paramedic Services for minor scrapes and cuts from glass when they got out of the pickup, Mines explained.

A police investigation is underway to determine the cause and whether any charges will be laid.

The parking lot is Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario property. A school board official says they will be conducting a separate investigation into the rollover.
