A Colorado woman has survived five days stranded in her car after a crash.

Kristin Hopkins of Highlands Ranch, Colo. was discovered Sunday by hikers near the state’s Highway 285 about 90 miles southwest of Denver, the Associated Press reports. Hopkins had been in a crash on Tuesday that resulted in her car going off the road and down an 80ft embankment, rolling many times and landing on its hood.

The 43-year-old was injured and dehydrated when she was discovered five days later, according to the Denver Post, and she was sent in a helicopter to St. Anthony Hospital. She had been reported as a missing person on April 29.
