Tallahassee Police say they do not know who was at fault in the crash. TPD spokesman Dave Northway says both drivers claim to have been in the middle lane.

Northway says they are looking for witnesses who can shed light on exactly what happened.

A woman walks away from a roll over crash on busy West Tennessee Street in Tallahassee.

It happened right in front of Bills Bookstore about 30 minutes ago.

The woman's gray Toyota is on its roof and one of its hubcaps is wedged into the door of the Tahoe it collided with. Emergency crews tells us the driver was wearing her seat belt. When we arrived on scene, she was gathering her belongings from her car and taking pictures with her phone.

Both drivers are okay.

Two of the west bound lanes are closed while crews removed the wreckage.

We're still waiting to learn what caused the accident.

    Subpoena her phone record to determine whether it was texting or just a phone call.

    The one who jumped out taking pics is obviously at fault. She was probably taking pics when she flipped the car!
