One person has been transported to hospital after their vehicle flipped over within the City of Castlegar.
The incident happened around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21 when a vehicle heading into Castlegar from the Highway 3 off ramp lost control and launched off the ramp, landing on its side in the parking lot behind the Home Hardware store on 18th Street.
