University of Jamestown van in rollover crash in Canada

University of Jamestown students returning from Canada were reportedly injured when a van they were driving left the road to avoid an oncoming car on Friday.

University of Jamestown students returning from Canada were reportedly injured when a van they were driving left the road to avoid an oncoming car on Friday.

Two UJ college vans were returning from a biology educational trip to Thompson, Manitoba, said Tena Lawrence, UJ vice president of marketing and communications, by text Sunday, when the accident happened in Canada.

She said a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction came over a hill in the same lane as the van - apparently while attempting to pass another vehicle - and forced one of the UJ buses off of the road.

The van rolled over after leaving the road, Lawrence said. There were five students in the van.

“All students received medical attention and were cleared,” Lawrence said. “There were no critical injuries.”
