A rollover crash on Going-to-the-Sun road in Glacier National Park sent one person to the hospital Tuesday afternoon.

Glacier’s Public Affairs Officer Lauren Alley said the single-vehicle accident occurred near the Avalanche area and involved two occupants. Both airbags deployed and one woman had some cuts and complained of additional pain. Alley said the woman was transported to the hospital by Three Rivers Ambulance Service for further evaluation and treatment.

The accident did not stop traffic, but traffic control was needed as flow was temporarily reduced to one lane.
