Averie Carrion says she got only two scratches from the accident Sunday night off Iowa Highway 10 between Alton and Granville in northwest Iowa.

According to a Sioux City television station, Jamie Carrion was headed home to Granville with Averie and her brother when their pickup slid off the highway and rolled, coming to rest on its side.

Jamie Carrion was trapped inside the truck cab and could not find her daughter. But Averie had left for a farmhouse to get help.

Summoned by Jamie Carrion's cell phone call, rescuers soon reunited the three at a nearby hospital, where they were treated and released.
