BRUSH PRAIRIE, WA (KPTV) -

Firefighters used various pieces of special equipment to free a woman from her car after a rollover crash in Brush Prairie Friday.

It happened just before 8 a.m. on the 17400 block of Northeast 182nd Avenue.

The car rolled multiple times before resting on its top in a ditch.

Firefighters from Clark County Fire District 3 used a special tool to stabilize the car, while alternating the use of both a hydraulic spreader and cutter to get the driver out.

Emergency crews treated the patient at the scene and said she did not appear to suffer any life-threatening injuries.

It's not yet clear what caused the crash.
