A woman in her 20s is recovering after an accident on Highway 13 North near Highway 520 East Sunday.

Just before 7:00 P.M. a van rolled over multiple times before coming to a stop upside down, according to the Sûreté du Québec.

SQ spokesperson Audrey-Anne Bilodeau said the driver in her 20s suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital where her life was initially in danger. Early Monday morning the SQ confirmed she’s recovering in hospital.

An 18 year old passenger was also in the car. She suffered minor injuries.

Bilodeau said no other vehicles were involved.

Three of the four lanes on Highway 13 North near Highway 520 East were closed for most of the evening to allow authorities to investigate the cause of the accident and remove debris from the road.

The cause of the accident is under investigation said Bilodeau, but added the driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel.
