Saturday night a three emergency crews were called to a single vehicle rollover on the Connector. This was the second serious incident since Friday after a chain-reaction collision involving five-vehicles left one man dead.

The crash occurred just after 7 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Highway 97 C near the Trepanier Road off-ramp.

Sunday morning emergency crews were once again called out to another single vehicle rollover just before 10 a.m. It’s unclear the severity of this crash.
