Emergency crews say the roll-bar on a Jeep likely saved the lives of a mother and daughter early this morning. The two were driving the Jeep south on Thor, up the Thor-Freya hill.
According to KHQ, a semi truck was driving eastbound, exiting the freeway, when the Jeep hit the front of the truck. That collision sent the Jeep rolling. There was no top on the vehicle, but it was equipped with a roll-bar, designed to protect its occupants from injury in a rollover.
Neither occupant was seriously hurt. The truck driver also was uninjured. Traffic was backed up for a short time, but the area is now clear.
The crash is still under investigation.
