NC Woman Found Alive 19 Hours After Crash

A North Carolina woman has been found about 19 hours after her sports utility vehicle ran off a road and down an embankment.

The Times-News of Burlington reported that children on bicycles found 38-year-old Sandra Elaine Fuller of Pittsboro on Sunday evening after she crawled out to a roadside. Authorities said she was dehydrated, but her injuries did not appear life threatening.

Fuller dropped a friend off between Pittsboro and Burlington shortly before midnight Saturday.

Highway Patrol Trooper R.J. Fuquay says Fuller rolled off a curving two-lane road, sailed past a mobile home vacant on the holiday weekend, and down a hill leading to a small creek. The SUV was covered by trees and brush and invisible from the road.
