On Oct. 13 at 12:35 p.m., two occupants of a vehicle which left the road by the Roche Cove bridge along Gillespie Road are lucky to be alive, says RCMP Staff Sgt. Stephen Wright.  The driver, with a learner’s licence, lost control of the car on the hill and rolled down the hill and came to rest on the wheels. The occupants suffered minor injuries and were transported to VGH as a caution. Wright cautioned drivers to be aware of the road conditions, slow down, allow extra distance between vehicles and to watch for deer on the roads.
