MISSOULA – A driver managed to escape the SUV he was driving without injury after it flipped over while navigating icy roads on Russell Street.

The crash happened on Russel and Palmer streets on Monday afternoon.

The driver, who did not wish to be identified, said he braked for a vehicle in front of him that was preparing to turn. The icy road conditions caused him to slide into a frozen pile of snow on the side of the road before the vehicle flipped over onto its roof.

The driver, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, said he was wearing the seatbelt and escaped from the crash uninjured and was not hospitalized.
