(Newser) – A Utah man whose car ended up jammed under a semi truck on an interstate tells KSL that he's got his 4-year-old daughter to thank for his life. Jordan Peterson was in the car alone, and he says that he was never much of a seatbelt guy until daughter Quinlee began ordering everyone to use them months ago. Thus, Peterson was buckled up, and he escaped the crash with a punctured lung as his most serious injury. (Impressive, if you check out images at KSL.) The twist is that Quinlee is named after a friend of Peterson's who was killed in a car accident. "She will not realize for a long time that she saved my life, but she did,” says Dad.
