Okla. trooper rescues woman trapped 2 days in car

OKLAHOMA CITY An elderly driver ran off the highway and was trapped and injured in her overturned car for nearly two days before a trooper saw skid marks and found her.

Betty McCord, 78, was hospitalized in serious condition after being pulled from the wreckage off State Highway 9.

"I was hanging upside down in a car for two days; you talk about some kind of horrible," McCord said Monday in a phone interview from her hospital bed. "I couldn't get out of the car. There was no way out and believe me I would have found it if there was."
