A car was found dangling from power lines in Tennessee after what authorities are calling a "freak accident" early Saturday.
The driver, only identified as a 56-year-old woman, is believed to have been speeding when she somehow ran up the utility pole and became caught, authorities told WBBJ-TV.
Photos taken at the scene show the sedan hanging at least 7 feet above the ground. A video shows the driver being extracted with a cherry picker about two hours after first responders arrived.
“We had to call the power company and got them there [sic] because the pole that she was hanging from was connected to a high-voltage power line,” Medina Fire Chief Jeff Rollins told the station.
Police told The Jackson Sun there was no indication of drugs, alcohol or a medical condition playing a role.
The woman was taken to a hospital for evaluation shortly after being removed from the car.
"I've been doing this for 38 years, and I've never seen this before," Rollins told the Sun.
