Jeep flips on its side

A Jeep rolled over on its side just before midnight last night near the intersection of 16th and Stewart Avenues in South Parkersburg.
There were two men in the Jeep at the time.
Their names and the cause of the accident haven't been released.
Captain Brian Drake with the Parkersburg Fire Department says they were both taken to the hospital.
"They were both complaining of back and neck injuries, pain. One guy couldn't feel his legs so we ended up using the jaws and the cutters and cutting the top of the Jeep off and dropping the lid down then pulling them both out that way," Drake says.
Drake says the men were conscious and talking to firefighters on the scene and that their injuries didn't appear to be life threatening.
