(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) — A car in Florida ended up with a little less headroom than advertised Tuesday morning when the driver trapped her vehicle under the flatbed of a semi truck in the town of Port St. Lucie.

Remarkably, the driver — a female in her mid-40′s — survived the crash and was rescued with non life-threatening injuries, the St. Lucie County Fire District said.

“Our crews arrived at 6:03, and she was flown to a trauma center at 6:52, so it took them almost an hour to extract her from the car,” fire district spokeswoman Catherine Chaney told ABC News.

Initial reports indicate the semi truck pulled into the road, and the female driver went under the truck before it could move out of the way.
