CLACKAMAS, OR (KPTV) -

Clackamas Fire personnel say it's a miracle that no one was seriously injured, after a car flipped and landed upright against a 30,000 gallon propane tank. The driver fled from the scene.

Four people were in the car, when the accident occurred, just after noon Saturday in the 9400 block of Southeast Mangan Drive.

Everyone was able to escape the vehicle prior to responders' arrival.  According to a Clackamas Fire spokesman, the police are searching for the driver.

The propane tank on which the car landed is one of several fenced in on the other side of the Jersey barrier.

Details about how the car wound up on the propane tank, or possible charges for the driver, have not been released.
