A few people needed to be rescued after a morning rollover.

It happened just before 9 Tuesday morning at 33rd and Melrose.

Lincoln Police say a mini SUV was driving north on 33rd when it hit another car going north. They say the rear-end collision caused the mini SUV to flip over on its roof, and caused the car to crash into a lightpole.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue were able to get the people out of the car with a hydraulic rescue system. We’re told the driver of the SUV had minor injuires.
