FOLSOM, CA - Folsom police say a family of seven is lucky to be alive after their SUV was flipped over on a Folsom roadway.
The accident happened at about 8 p.m. on Greenback Lane near American River Canyon Drive in Folsom.
A Toyota Rav4, carrying 7 people, had pulled to the side of the road to check on a load that was strapped to their car. There isn't much of a shoulder on the road, so the driver wasn't able to pull completely off the roadway. While stopped, the family's SUV was slammed into from behind by a Pontiac GTO.
Two adults and one of the kids were ejected from the SUV. The entire family, with children ages 5 to 14 years old, was transported to the hospital.
The driver of the Pontiac was uninjured in the crash. He is not facing any charges. Police said that alcohol did not play a factor in the crash.
