A car wound up on its roof in the Moose River in St. Johnsbury.

Police say Brittany Norkezeck, 18, of St. Johnsbury, somehow missed a corner on Portland Street Tuesday night, sending her off the road and upside down into the water 30 feet below. Norkezeck was wearing her seat belt and only suffered a small bump on the head. She managed to climb out on her own in the dark and pouring rain.

Police say she is lucky to be alive. Her car is totaled. It was pulled from the river Wednesday morning.
