JEFFERSONTOWN, KY (WAVE) - Two people escaped serious injury when their car collided with a UPS semi and became wedged underneath it early Thursday morning.

Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell said a preliminary investigation revealed that the eastbound UPS truck was crossing Hurstbourne Parkway from the Interstate 64 East ramp when it collided with a white passenger vehicle. The car hit the right rear axle of the semi-trailer and became wedged underneath it.

Mitchell said the driver of the white car and a passenger were taken to University of Louisville Hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the semi was not hurt.
