She was treated at the scene and declined further medical attention.

It is not known where the ladder came from.

  1. unsecured cargo in a moving vehicle which ultimately ends up on the roadway and then causes almost personal injury. the police patrolling the roads need to “be on the watch” for vehicles hauling unsecured cargo and pull them over and ticket them. Another dangerous thing, those roofing vans with ladders stacked 5ft / 6ft high, it’s only a matter of time before something happens and someone gets hurt or killed when the van is rear- ended and they come tumbling down (hit someone in the opposite lance, fly off the roof and through a windshield into the back seat of the car while carrying a baby, etc.).
