The driver of a vehicle that went over a bank on Highway 3A last night just above the Grohman Narrows pond escaped uninjured.

Nelson Fire Rescue says when crews arrived after 10:40 p.m., the lone occupant was still in the vehicle, which was sitting precariously in the loose rocks above the pond.

“The first arriving crew’s primary objective was to secure the vehicle to prevent it from rolling over or sliding further down the bank,” assistant chief Mike Daloise said in a news release.

“This was accomplished by securing the vehicle with ropes and a come-along. Once the vehicle was secured a ladder was placed to allow the occupant to climb back up the bank to the roadway.”

RCMP are investigating the cause of the accident.
