Driver stable after Queensway rollover

Ottawa Paramedics say the driver of a car that flipped onto its roof on Highway 417 Wednesday morning suffered only minor injuries and is now stable in hospital.

Emergency crews were called to the 417 eastbound near Maitland at around 10:15 a.m. for the crash. All eastbound lanes of the highway and some westbound lanes were closed while firefighters worked to extricate the driver, who was trapped in the vehicle.

Paramedics say the man is believed to be in his 50s.

Traffic came to a standstill for about an hour.

The road reopened at around 11:30 a.m.
