Police are probing the cause of Sunday afternoon's single-vehicle, roll-over wreck on Koksilah Road near Fairbridge Drive.

The 1:30 p.m. dry-road flip, by a female driving a red VW sedan, was attended by Duncan firefighters and ambulance paramedics, News Leader Pictorial photographer Andrew Leong said.

The driver's identity was unknown by deadline.

"When I got there, the fire chief said 'The driver's already out of the car and being taken care of by ambulance personnel,'" he said of the driver, who suffered minor injuries under overcast skies.

Later reports to Leong indicated the driver crawled from the car Leong noticed had left a straight stretch, and landed in a ditch after hitting a power pole.

Hydro agents were called to the scene. It was unknown by press time if electricity was knocked out by the crash.
