On December 22, a vehicle was turned upside down while heading west on Grant Road. The car drifted off-road and slipped into a ditch. On hitting a culvert the vehicle flipped. The driver was wearing a seatbelt and the airbags engaged, keeping injuries minimal. Speed and alcohol were ruled out, and there is a possibility that the driver was distracted.

There have been a few small collisions attributable to road conditions or wild-life aversions.

Just a reminder: The police will be out doing road checks. Don’t drink and drive and before you go out arrange a safe way to get home after the party.
