BILLINGS -- No one was injured after a truck with two people in it rolled into the Gardner River in Yellowstone National Park early Monday evening. 

The crash occurred "just north" of the Boiling River at about 5:45 p.m. after the northbound driver lost control of the truck, according to Linda Veress, a spokesperson for the park.

The vehicle rolled down a slope into the river and landed on its roof. After the crash both people, who Veress said were adults, were able to exit the vehicle and get to shore where they were helped by passersby.

The truck was partially underwater after the crash. A park road closed while the vehicle was towed. No one was injured, Veress said by email. 

The driver of the truck had an out-of-state driver's license. No citations were issued.

The Boiling River, one of the park's many famous thermal features, is located in Montana south of the town of Gardiner. The Boiling River is a name for a section of the Gardner River where cold water mixes with water from the Boiling River hot spring.
