Man barely injured in rollover

The driver of this Jeep, at center in gray, is lucky to be alive after his vehicle went off U.S. 84 Tuesday morning, taking out 30-40 feet of steel guardrail, then flipping twice before coming to rest in the eastbound lane. The driver was the only person in the Jeep, and was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. His good fortune in escaping with only minor cuts can be attributed to his vehicle’s roll bar, and the fact his steering wheel was on the right side of the Jeep, not the left.
