A close call for the occupants of a jeep that crashed on the east mountain this morning.
Police say three people suffered minor injuries when the jeep veered from the road and hit a hydro pole on Upper Centennial near Ridge Road just after 3 o'clock.
Downed powerlines were just one of the concerns for emergency crews; the vehicle was also hanging over the edge of the escarpment.
Upper Centennial Parkway was closed for several hours.
The 18-year-old driver from Stoney Creek was charged with careless driving, alcohol wasn't a factor.
