The department says firefighters had to wrap a cable around a tree and use a pulley to help remove the windows and open the roof. Then the person trapped in the car was able to walk out.

The fire department says several of those rescuers had taken part in an eight hour training the day before and had another eight hours scheduled for the next day.
