Officials are saying that the woman is lucky because motorists behind her saw the accident and offered assistance.

Reports say the driver lost control of her vehicle and went off the road colliding with a fence and into a field.

The fire crew says the woman was fortunate that other motorists saw the accident because the woman might've been stranded for hours after the accident and not discovered until morning.

The woman had to be extracted from her vehicle and she was flown to a nearby hospital.

No word if drugs or alcohol were involved in the accident and the accident is still under investigation. You can read more details about the accident here
