Saturday night, driving toward Ollallie Lake near Warm Springs, a Jeep crashed after hitting ice.



About a mile from the Austin Hot Springs traveling east on Clackamas River Road, or Mt. Hood National Forest Road 46, a black Jeep Wrangler four-door hit a patch of ice on the curve at night and skided off the road into the Clackamas River.

Once the Jeep was back on four wheelsAlthough the Jeep landed upside down, both passenger and driver were uninjured. It was dark outside. They were able to climb out of the vehicle with minor injuries, while the car rested at a 50-degree angle inverted 1 foot from the raging water.

They hitch-hiked a ride to safety since there is no cell service in that area, and the next day they returned with a group of off-road vehicles to pull the Jeep back into the road.

The vehicle landed upside down a foot from the waterWhile the recovery was in progress, the local sheriff's deputy arrived and talked to the people organizing the recovery. The road closed for about 45 minutes. Five rigs were involved in the recovery, taking turns to either pull or drag using their winches.

At 2:50 p.m., the Jeep was back in the road, where it later needed to be transported to the city in a flatbed. The Jeep back into the roadJeep back in the road but not in driving conditions
