Jaws of life were used to remove an uninjured male driver from a car that rolled on Osborne Bay Road Monday at around 5:30 p.m.

Crofton firefighters attended the scene and controlled traffic for about an hour while cutting the roof from the late-model Acura that rolled into the right-hand ditch on the curving road between Crofton and Maple Bay roads on sunny, dry pavement.

RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday's email to the News Leader Pictorial described the crash as a single-vehicle, non-injury, MVI involving the local 20-year-old driver.

"Yes, the driver had to be cut out due to the crunched state of his vehicle. Lone occupant, not drinking, speed a likely factor, no charges."
