It swerved across the highway and wound up rolling over on the other side of the road. No other cars were involved in the wreck.

The Lake Tomahawk Fire Department and Oneida County Sheriffs Department responded to the accident.

They believe the icy road conditions were the likely cause.

All three people in the van amazingly walked away with no injuries.
