cartoon motorhome graphicAs Pat Biggs and Loren McDougall began their RV trip from International Falls to Oregon in their motorhome on Wednesday, the two-door Pontiac hitched behind suddenly broke free and careened off the highway and down a 50-foot ditch, reports the Bemidji Pioneer.

According to Jeff Lofgren of Southside Towing, the hitch, connecting the Pontiac’s rear end to the back of the RV, snapped free and ripped the small car’s rear bumper off in the process. The car veered into the left, northbound lane of Highway 71 and down a steep embankment, says the Bemidji Pioneer.

No cars were traveling in the northbound lane when the accident occurred.

“We were very lucky that there were no cars in the other lane or people on the side of the road when it happened,” Biggs said. “I’m glad no one was hurt.”
