A Jeep flipped on its side from the contact, but nobody was hurt in the accident, according to LaGrange Police Officer Brandon Sparks. A second vehicle received front end damage, Sparks said.

With assistance from the LaGrange Fire Department, the LPD towed the Jeep and the roadway was cleared by noon.
