MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A 30-year-old South Carolina man is recovering from a broken neck and other injuries suffered when his rental car went off a forest road in western Montana last week and rolled down an embankment, causing him to be trapped in the car for more than a day.
Shaun Lee of Moncks Corner, S.C., told his story to the media on Monday.
Lee says he was looking for a motel when he took a wrong exit and a few wrong turns and found himself coming down a slope on a dirt road at 12:15 a.m. Aug. 1. He says the car went off the wet road and rolled, leaving him trapped upside down.
At about 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 2, Forest Service employee Benji Hegg spotted Lee’s car and called for help.
