Two teenagers escaped injury Wednesday when the driver lost control on a slick road in Mississippi.

The 17-year-old driver and 16-year-old passenger of a GMC Yukon told Jones County sheriff’s deputies that the vehicle began sliding on the wet road at a curve near the bridges on Bush Dairy Road in Pine Belt, WDAM-TV reported.

The vehicle left the road and flipped down the embankment before landing wheels down on a stump and metal fence posts.
