Car goes over embankment on T.C.H. near St. John's Sunday afternoon

No serious injuries

One man escaped serious injury Sunday afternoon when the car he was driving left the road and went over a four-metre embankment into a water filled ditch.

The incident happened in the eastbound lane of the Trans-Canada highway at Paddy’s Pond at about 5:30 p.m. and left the car with extensive damage.

The driver appeared to have a minor head injury but he was able to walk to an ambulance where he was checked by paramedics.

Traffic was slowed through the area and briefly stopped so a tow-truck could remove the wrecked car.
