IRVINE, Calif. — A woman in California is recovering after her car flew off a road — trapping her in the wreckage for almost 14 hours.

Her car fell more than 500 feet down an embankment on Wednesday night.

She left a voice mail for her husband, a sheriff’s deputy who was working an overnight shift.

He did not hear the message until hours after she had already been trapped.

Police were able to locate her by using cell phone data and California High Way Patrol helicopters.

It took them an hour to cut her out of the car.

She was airlifted as a trauma cause, but does not appear to have any life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the crash is unknown.
