Po­lice say she was dis­tracted by a vase of flow­ers spilling in the ve­hi­cle she was driv­ing on East Strand.

A 66-year-old town of Ul­ster woman was in­jured in a one-car rollover ac­ci­dent near the Ron­d­out Creek water­front, city po­lice said Tues­day.

Olga Perez, 66, of the Ul­ster Gar­dens apart­ments, was west­bound on East Strand, near Broad­way, in a Honda Ac­cord about 4:55 p.m. Mon­day when she be­came dis­tracted by a vase of flow­ers spilling in her ve­hi­cle, swerved to the right and struck a park­ing me­ter and a tree, caus­ing the car to flip and land on its roof, said po­lice Sgt. Richard Ne­gron. The car came to rest in a mu­nic­i­pal park­ing area at the edge of the road.

Perez, who was alone in the car, was taken to the Health Al­liance Hos­pi­tal’s Broad­way Cam­pus with in­juries that were not life-threat­en­ing, Ne­gron said.
