WOMAN FLIPS CAR, IS UNINJURED

The sole occupant of a compact car narrowly escaped serious injury Wednesday when she lipped her vehicle onto its side while maneuvering a turn near the entrance to Mafolie Estate.
Agents of St. Thomas Rescue responded to the scene after a police traffic investigator saw the accident happen.
The unidentified driver was able to stand up in the vehicle as it rested on its left side, according to a release from St. Thomas Rescue.
Rescue and Emergency Medical Service personnel pulled the woman out of the car, and she walked away from the accident without a scratch.
The vehicle was towed away by a wrecker. It appeared to have suffered damage to its left side and under carriage.
The V.I. Police Department's traffic bureau assumed the investigation of the accident.
