Woman treated and released after being trapped in vehicle

A Meridian, Idaho, woman received non-life threatening injuries Wednesday after she spent several hours in her crashed vehicle down in a ravine off U.S. Highway 95 near Rome in Southeast Oregon. 

The woman, identified as Tarah Colwell, 32, told Oregon Department of Transportation employees she was trapped inside her damaged passenger vehicle since early Wednesday morning after it went off the highway to where it came to rest.

Colwell's vehicle was spotted by ODOT employees who contacted police and medical responders. 

According to a report from the Oregon State Police, the vehicle was found approximately 100 yards from the highway in a ravine. Troopers and emergency responders were dispatched to the remote area. 

An air ambulance and ground medical personnel were dispatched to the area. Jordan Valley Ambulance and rescue personnel arrived about an hour after the report came in to remove Colwell out of the ravine back to the highway for transport to West Valley Medical Center in Caldwell, Idaho. According to the hospital, Colwell was treated and later released. Malheur County search and rescue resources were also requested to respond but were advised to disregard after the woman was rescued.
