BELPRE, OHIO (WTAP) - A driver says wearing her seatbelt saved her life today after she lost control of her car off on Veto Road this morning.

The driver and the passenger, who both wish to stay anonymous, say they were driving down the road when they hit a fence on the side of the road.

The car flipped onto its side and landed facing the opposite direction that it was initially traveling.

The driver says her airbag inflated during the crash. She says other than her rib cage feeling slightly bruised from the airbag they have no other noticeable injuries.

The driver says she believes wearing her seatbelt saved her life. The Ohio State Highway Patrol was on scene and will have more information as they continue the investigation.
