Two teenaged girls avoided serious injury when the SUV they were driving to school flipped over as it swerved to avoid a head-on collision with an oncoming vehicle.

Erica Dickman, 16, and her 15-year-old sister, Ashly, were driving south on Ohio 269 at 7:20 a.m. Friday when a red Chrysler PT Cruiser came at them head on. The girls were on their way to Margaretta High, where they attend school.

The girls' mother, Vicki, said Erica, who just got her driver's license in the last couple of months, swerved the 1999 Chevy Blazer out of the way of the oncoming driver, described as a woman on a cell phone.
