Glenn Beck's empty SUV crashes down NY hill

LODI, N.Y. (AP) — Radio talk show host Glenn Beck's family had a close call when their sport utility vehicle rolled down a steep hill in New York's Finger Lakes region just after they had exited the SUV.

In an account of the mishap posted on Beck's website, TheBlaze.com, he says he was hugging his newly married daughter as his wife got their young son out of the vehicle. They had just arrived at the cottage rented for the daughter's wedding reception last weekend in Lodi, on Seneca Lake. Beck says the SUV slid down the hill and overturned, coming to rest near the shoreline.

Photos on the website show the SUV with broken windows and damage to its passenger side.

The Seneca County Sheriff's Office says the accident wasn't reported to police in the county.
