A woman was taken to the hospital after a car plunged 50 feet down a steep embankment, trapping her inside, the Atascadero Fire Department said early Sunday afternoon.
The crash happened about 10 a.m. on Escondido Road, according to Atascadero Fire Capt. Matt Miranda.
When the fire department arrived on the scene, they worked to free the woman using a rope system to get her up the hill, according to a Twitter post from the agency.
The woman was then taken to Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton with non-life-threatening injuries, Miranda said.
