A New Hampshire teen may have is lucky to have escaped uninjured from his vehicle after it landed atop a bridge over the Merrimack River.

New Hampshire state police say a Nashua teen lost control of his Honda Accord on Saturday, hit a snowbank then went airborne. His car came to rest on a guardrail of the Sagamore Bridge, its rear dangling over the water and its front fender planted in the snow at the side of the highway.

The teen was issued a citation for failing to keep his vehicle within roadway markings, but escaped unscathed.

Police say neither drugs nor alcohol were factors in the crash.
