-A +A
A 60-year-old Roseville woman was rescued from her overturned vehicle this morning after spending an hour in a water-filled ditch. Dennis Mathisen of the Roseville Fire Department said fire/rescue personnel received the call at 3:17 a.m. “She was driving southbound on Washington Boulevard and had driven through the Andora Subway Tunnel,” Mathisen said . “Something happened and she veered off of Washington, going into a ditch west of the road.” Mathisen said the vehicle had rolled and landed on its roof. “The woman was hanging upside down in the driver’s seat,” he said. “Her seat belt kept her in.” Mathisen said that the woman started honking her horn and screaming for help. “Someone heard the honking and went out and checked,” Mathisen said. “After she was located 911 was called.” Mathisen said firefighters and rescue personnel were able to get the victim out of the vehicle. “She suffered some minor injuries and was transported to the hospital for treatment,” he said. He said the Roseville Police Department was investigating the traffic collision. ~ Brad Smith
