Woman Rescued After Pickup Got Stuck In Tree Tops

Dana Bowser was driving on an icy road north of Pittsburgh, Pa. Her car plunged into a ravine. There's no telling what might have happened, except that her pickup truck never struck the ground. The truck landed in tree tops 30 feet high.

A Pennsylvania driver had the luck you normally see in cartoons. Dana Bowser was driving on an icy road north of Pittsburgh. Her car plunged into a ravine.
