TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka woman and her 5-month-old daughter have survived after being flung from their SUV when a truck struck it from behind on the shoulder of Interstate 70.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/1KabnNB) reports Passion Hendricks was feeding the baby in a Chevrolet Suburban parked alongside the highway with mechanical problems around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Michael Saulsbury of Kansas City, Missouri, was westbound when his GMC Sierra left the road and struck Hendricks’ vehicle.

The impact sent the SUV onto its side and into the ditch, ejecting Hendricks as she held the baby. A 16-month-old girl who was restrained in a child seat remained in the SUV.

Saulsbury’s vehicle also overturned.

All four were taken to a Topeka hospital, where they were treated and released.
