Oregon woman rescued from car wreck in ravineMarch 18, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A state highway worker doing maintenance along the old highway over the Siskiyou Summit in Southern Oregon noticed a glint of light off a car bumper about 100 yards down a ravine and decided to check it out.
The Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/1gDGMt3) reports Doyle Summers found a woman unconscious but breathing inside the car Tuesday morning and called 911 for help.
State police Sgt. Jeff Allison says rescuers put the 71-year-old Talent woman on a backboard and needed ropes to get her up the steep hillside to the road. They took her to a Medford hospital.
State police Lt. Gregg Hastings said the woman was apparently unhurt, and was being held for a mental health evaluation.
