A [Burlington] teenager was taken to hospital after the car he was driving flipped in town early [Thursday] morning.

Halton Regional police say the single-vehicle accident occurred at 2:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Guelph Line at Ireland Drive and Longmeadow Road.

A red Toyota Camry rolled onto its roof. In the process the car toppled a light standard.
