A 15-day-old baby escaped a rollover collision Monday night with no injuries, Ottawa paramedics said Tuesday.

But while paramedics said the child, who was secured in a car seat in the rear seat of a Chevy Cavalier, suffered no apparent injuries, two other people were injured.

Just before midnight, paramedics units from Prescott and Ottawa responded to the collision in the westbound lane of Highway 417 near the Leitrim overpass and found a four-door, blue Chevy Cavalier with damage to the driver’s side and its roof.


A 16-year-old female was found roughly 10 feet away from the car in a heavily wooded forest, with an obviously fractured left femur and fractured ankle. Paramedics were unable to ascertain if the cause of the fracture was from the ejection or from contact with a large tree. She was taken to hospital.

Ottawa fire crews had to cut away driver’s door so paramedics could extricate a 25-year-old female driver. She was treated for lower back pain and left hip pain.

A 28-year-old male passenger in the front seat was uninjured.

Ontario Provincial Police are now investigating.
