She had called police herself to report the incident and when police arrived, they found that she couldn’t get out. Firefighters found the car had fallen 5 feet to the ground and was resting on the bumper outside on the ground with the rear half of the car inside the garage with the wheels 2 feet in the air. The woman wasn’t injured but was unable to get out of the vehicle. Wedges were placed under the bumper to secure the car and the passenger door was opened and she was lifted out the front passenger door. There was major damage to the north wall but no hazards. The vehicle was pulled back into the garage by a towing company and the woman signed a patient refusal.
