A 52-year-old female from Grand Forks was involved in a single vehicle roll-over near the Second Street Bridge last night.

Grand Forks RCMP and Fire Rescue respond to an accident near the Second Street Bridge on Dec. 6.

A licence suspension was issued and a 2002 Jeep Liberty impounded after an accident near the Second Street Bridge last night, according to Grand Forks RCMP.

Alcohol and road conditions were said to be contributing factors in the single vehicle roll-over, which took place around 9:33 p.m.

“The single occupant of the vehicle was not injured, was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and 30-day notice of impound after the driver blew a fail on a roadside screening device,” explained Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison, adding that it was a 52-year-old female from Grand Forks.

“There were slippery road conditions, which are believed to have been one of the significant causes of the accident,” he went on to say.

Estimated damage to the vehicle was approximately $3,500.
