A woman escaped with only minor injuries after her car slid under a tractor-trailer on Interstate 70 and was dragged.

Indiana State Police said it's a "miracle" that the woman was able to walk away from the accident.

The woman told police she lost control of the car before sliding under the truck, and the driver of the truck said he dragged the car about a fifth of a mile before he was able to stop the truck.

The woman was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The accident happened just before 7 p.m. on westbound I-70 near the Shadeland Avenue exit.
