EMIGRATION CANYON — A woman who was trapped in a vehicle in Emigration Canyon was freed by rescue workers Thursday morning.
At 5:06 a.m. Unified police and fire responded to a call from a woman whose vehicle had driven off the road.
The vehicle reached the first bend near the bottom of the canyon, east of a parking lot, when it left the road, headed down a steep embankment and did not come to a stop for 1,000 feet, according to Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal.
"We don't know what caused her to veer off the side of the road," Hoyal said.
Emergency responders had trouble finding her car because the vehicle was not visible from the road. She was alert and talking with officers who were trying to find her, Hoyal said.
Emergency crews ultimately located the woman, 33, and helped her get out of the car, according to Hoyal. She was transported to the University Hospital with minor injuries.
