MERIDEN — Fire officials had to assist the driver out of her Jeep that flipped over on Hanover Avenue this morning, but she escaped injury.

Fire Captain Russ Donovan said the accident, which occurred just after 9 a.m. on Monday, was due to the slippery roads from the snow. The woman in the car had to be assisted out by fire crews, but was not injured.

“It could have been worse,” Donovan said of the accident and how the vehicle landed.

The Jeep flipped on it’s side and landed in a ditch on the side of the road in the area of 1389 Hanover Ave. Donovan said the driver might have escaped injury because she was wearing her seatbelt. There were no fluids leaking from the car, so the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection didn’t need to be requested. A small section of the road was closed for about 10 minutes, and then opened to one lane.
