CORNWALL/GLEN WALTER – A driver escaped with minor injuries after taking a harrowing spill off County Road 2 at Gray’s Creek this week.

SD&G O.P.P. say the driver failed to negotiate the curve in the road at the Gray’s Creek bridge, east of Boundary Road, around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

She missed the guardrail, went down the embankment before the car flipped on its side.

The driver – a 22-year-old woman from Sudbury – was treated for minor injuries.

Const. Tylor Copeland told Cornwall Newswatch the vehicle was later towed out of the area.

Copeland says alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
