SALT LAKE CITY -- A bizarre traffic accident in Sugar House Friday evening ended with one vehicle sitting on top of another.

Police say a car approached the busy intersection at 1300 East and 2100 South traveling 75 miles an hour. It ended up underneath an SUV.

"The driver of the Saturn was driving way too fast, and as they found that the Jeep in front of them was stopped, hit their brakes -- which caused the suspension to drop, and the nose of the Saturn went right under the jeep," explained Salt Lake City police Lt. Melody Gray.

The driver of the Saturn suffered the only injury, a slight bump on his forehead.
