A vehicle went over an embankment in Capitol Forest late Sunday and a woman was extracted with a rope rescue.
West Thurston Fire crews responded to the incident about three miles from the C-line entrance off the C-7000 road. The newer 4-wheel drive vehicle encountered about half a foot of snow and went over a 40-foot embankment, according to the West Thurston Fire Facebook page.
Three occupants were able to to get out of the vehicle, which came to rest on its side at the bottom of the hill. One person, an adult female, was trapped in the back seat.
Fire crews used specialized ropes to reach the vehicle, free the woman and bring her back to the roadway, according to West Thurston Fire.
