A Pennsylvania teen was trapped inside her car for nearly a day after she crashed into a culvert. It was after 11 p.m. when 18-year-old Brooke Spence drove her SUV into the westbound lane for unknown reasons. Spence hit a utility pole guide wire and went airborne. Her car landed upside-down in a deep ditch by the side of the road. It wasn't until 18 hours later, when the sunlight hit the overturned SUV in just the right way, that Brad Shearer noticed the crumpled car in his backyard.

Shearer says he found the girl responsive and incredibly calm. She had called out for help following the crash, but as the hours dragged on and no help arrived she grew quiet. Since her parents are on vacation no one had noticed the teen was missing. Fox 43 reported Spence was is in fair condition at Lancaster General Hospital.
