An Alabama woman who went missing for five days after disappearing on her way to the post office was found alive in the wreckage of her crashed car.
Robin Joyce Fancher was last seen on April 17 and left her home in the Greentree Apartments in Headland, where she ordered her Mitsubishi Galant 2003 around 12.30 pm.
For the next five days, her whereabouts remained a complete mystery, until a passerby in Dothan saw the rear end of a silver car that stuck out of a brush-covered ditch on Monday afternoon and turned 911.
Inside, officers found Fancher deliberately, but pin against the driver's door. The first respondents worked tirelessly to free her during a rescue operation that took almost 90 minutes.

A passerby in Dothan saw the rear of a silver car protruding from a brush-covered ditch near County Road 203 on Monday afternoon and turned 911
Rescuers from five different departments worked tirelessly for 90 minutes to free Fancher
Fancher would be aware during the rescue operation and communicate with officers
The woman, the age of which is unknown, would have communicated with rescuers during the entire effort.
According to a release from the Alabama State Troopers, Fancher's vehicle was not easily visible to motorists driving along County Road 203 and they believe the crash occurred a few days ago.
Fancher has been transported to a local hospital to undergo treatment for her injuries.
According to Dothan Fire Battalion Chief Pete Webb, her safe extraction from the crumpled vehicle would have posed a number of challenges.
& # 39; The main challenges were where the car was and where the victim was pinned against the driver's door, & # 39; Webb told Dothan First. & # 39; It was off the road and it was difficult to pull the car around. & # 39;
Specific information about how Fancher survived or the severity of her condition has not yet been confirmed by the Sheriff or Headland Police office. Both departments are said to be conducting an investigation.
She was taken to a local hospital to be treated for & # 39; multiple injuries & # 39 ;, said a family member. Her condition was also described as stable

& # 39; Alabama State Troopers are investigating a single vehicle accident that was discovered today, April. 22, by a passer-by at 12.30 on County Road 203 at Limestone Creek Bridge, just south of Dothan, & # 39; the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said in a statement.
& # 39; Fancher, locked in the vehicle, was taken to a local hospital to treat her injuries. Nothing is available anymore, while the state explorers of Alabama continue to investigate. & # 39;
