Two rollover crashes during holiday travel

Posted: Updated:

Two rollover crashes within hours and miles of each other on this 4th of July.

 The first on I-380 southbound near the Gilbertville exit where a SUV pulling a RV trailer lost control and rolled.

 The second on South Canfield Road just north of the Highway 20 exit where a car lost control around a sharp corner. 

 All three people involved in the two rollovers walked away with minor bruises and scrapes.

 First responders pulled the driver from her car that landed on its side in the middle of a corn field, Monday evening.

 The white car flew off of Canfield Road while rounding a corner and rolled into a field.

 Witnesses from a nearby home say they heard the screech of tires and then a loud crash, but when they ran to the road, they couldn't see the car at first; most of it hidden from the road by the tall corn.

 The woman taken to the hospital with minor cuts.

 Just hours before, two area residents walking away from an other rollover crash on I-380 near the Gilbertville exit.

  A woman lost control of her SUV when the RV trailer she was pulling fish-tailed.

  Only miles from home, the driver's RV was flattened and everything inside was scattered across the median.

  The clean up slowed holiday travel and closed one lane of traffic.

  With the lowest gas prices since 2005, AAA predicts this will be the most traveled Independence Day weekend on record.
