Woman trapped in flipped car

I hear on the scanner that a woman is trapped in her upside down car on a steep hillside on West Newman Lake Drive near Sutton Bay. A deputy said she is "responsive." There's no word yet on why she crashed. Fire crews are on the way to free the woman.

10:25 a.m. update: Newman Lake Fire District units on the scene are asking for help from the Spokane Valley Fire Department.

10:35 a.m. update: The car is apparently 25 feet down a steep embankment from the road. That's going to make extrication tricky.
