Mother and daughter survive car sliding under truck trailer
Duka was able to escape the wreckage but it took rescue crews two hours to cut Moening out of the sports car. High temperatures slowed rescue efforts, as firefighters could only work in 15 minute shifts with multiple water breaks. Moening told NBC 10 she didn't realize she was still wedged under the truck until rescuers had almost freed her.
"When they did they took the roof off and I looked up," Moening said. "And I thought, 'Oh my God, I'm under the truck!'"
Both women are in the hospital being treated for minor injuries.
