Two people were injured Sunday in a single vehicle rollover on Highway 2.

The accident took place at 2:30 p.m. MT in the southbound lanes just north of the Calgary city limits. Officers arriving on scene found a red Honda CRV, which had rolled and come to rest on its roof.

There were two people in the vehicle at the time of the crash — a male driver and a female passenger.

Both are in their 60s and are from Red Deer.

The male was initially trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated by emergency crews. He was transported by EMS to hospital in stable condition.

The female passenger was treated and released at the scene.

Police are investigating the cause of the rollover, but driver inattention is believed to have been a factor.

Charges are pending against the male driver.
