The Ottawa Fire Service was called to the rollover shortly before 6:40 p.m. and responding crews found someone trapped inside a vehicle, according to a fire service news release. They worked quickly to remove the person.

Three vehicles were involved in the collision, according to OFS spokesperson Nicholas DeFazio.

Ottawa Paramedic Service commander Stephanie Mills said one person was transported to hospital in stable condition, and three others were assessed by paramedics, but not taken to hospital.
