MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minnesota woman hung upside down and unconscious in her overturned car for nearly two hours before recovering enough to send a one-word text to her husband: help.
Jeffrey Mammen then called 911 and went searching for his wife, Jolene Mammen, in the early hours of Feb. 14. He found her about five miles from their Thief River Falls home. She was on her way to work in Fargo, North Dakota, when her car hit a patch of ice on a little-use road, skidded off and landed on its roof.READ MORE: Victoria Neighborhood Voices Concerns Over Level 3 Offender Matthew Vanhecke Moving In
