Deputies with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office and an Indiana conservation officer rescued a woman whose vehicle had flipped into a culvert Tuesday.

The crash happened near 296th Street and Carpenter Road on April 30 in northern Hamilton County. Emergency crews arrived to find the inverted vehicle submerged in water, with the driver still inside.

The officers, along with firefighters from White River and Jackson townships, used a winch to angle the vehicle to expose the windows. Standing in the water, officers shattered the window and cut away an airbag to get to the trapped driver.

The woman was pulled from the vehicle and was treated by medics before she was taken to the St. Vincent Hospital for chest pain.

"Without these measures taken by the first responders, the outcome for the victim could have been much worse and likely have resulted in a drowning," Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy Bryan Melton said in a news release.
