FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – An SUV went off the road and into a ditch Sunday night after hitting an ice patch on the road.

A 19-year-old girl was driving the SUV north on Hillegas Road around 6:30 p.m. Her parents told NewsChannel 15 that when she hit the icy spot just south of the Bass Road intersection, the SUV went off the road and flipped over in the ditch.

The NewsChannel 15 photographer at the scene said two men stopped and helped the teen get out of the SUV through the back door. The teen was not hurt.
