W.Va. woman trapped in wrecked van nearly 3 days

A West Virginia woman is recovering after she was trapped in her wrecked van for almost three days and crawled out to reach help.

Authorities in Monongalia County say 41-year-old Veronica McFoy lost control of her van on a rural road Monday. It went over an embankment and landed in an overgrown area not visible from the road.

Her husband told The Dominion Post (http://bit.ly/r8Ei4o) that she broke vertebrae, ribs and her chest bone. She wasn't able to use a tool inside to break a window until Thursday. She crawled out to the road and flagged down help.

She was in fair condition Friday at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown.
