A woman was trapped in her S-U-V surrounded by high voltage power lines following a crash in Albany Monday afternoon.
Albany firefighters, paramedics, police, and Water Gas and Light technicians worked together to rescue 41-year old Barbara Dudley.
Her Chevrolet Suburban crashed into a power pole at Clark Avenue and Mock Road around 1:30.
The impact cut the pole in half and brought down power lines and a traffic light.
W-G-&-L technicians cut power to the lines, and firefighters used the jaws of life to cut the doors away so E-M-T's could get Dudley out.
Albany Fire Department Assistant Chief Rubin Jordan said "She was talking. She was calm the whole time. APD Kept here calm, along with EMS and our guys. She was safe from the energy inside the car, and we protected her the best as we can."
Traffic on Clark Avenue and Mock Road had to be re-routed while the power lines were cleared.
Police are not sure why Dudley crashed.
She was transported to Phoebe Putney Hospital where she is in good condition.
