One man is in custody following a single vehicle rollover accident in Goulds this afternoon.

The accident happened on a side road next to the Robert E. Howlett highway shortly before 4 p.m.

The man’s vehicle overturned on its side after going into some trees on the narrow icy dirt road.

Firefighters from the St. John’s Regional fire department were the first to arrive on scene and the male was apparently already out of his vehicle and attempting to leave the area. The firefighters were able to prevent the man from leaving until officers with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary arrived.

The agitated and shouting suspect was then searched and placed aboard an ambulance accompanied by police.
