Police responded to a 911 call about the single-vehicle crash in St. Catherines on Thursday at 9:45 a.m.
The vehicle left the road, hit a mailbox and came to rest in a ditch.
Three occupants of the vehicle — two women aged 18 and 19, along with an infant — were checked by Island EMS on scene for minor injuries.
The 19-year-old driver was charged under the Highway Traffic Act when the investigation revealed she was using a cellphone while operating the vehicle.
Speed and having a spare tire on the vehicle may have also been factors in the crash.
The RCMP are reminding drivers that using any hand-held device for any reason is a dangerous and illegal practice. Taking your eyes off the road for even a second can have disastrous results.
