Vehicle flips on Rockwell

Tow capacity apparently misjudged, vehicle loses control and ends up in ditch

Emergency crews tend to the scene of a flipped vehicle in a ditch at approximately 1:30 p.m. Monday on Rockwell Drive just north of Harrison yacht club.

RCMP said it appeared the boat was too large for the towing vehicle which resulted in a loss of control.

“It is important to ensure your vehicle has the tow capacity for the trailer or boat you are towing as well as having the proper safety measures in place, such as a proper-sized tow hitch and power brake connector,” said Sgt. Darren Rennie.

The driver was charged under section 219 of the Motor Vehicle Act for Improperly Equipped Motor Vehicle.

It was the only vehicle involved in the incident.
