ANGELES FOREST (CBS) — A woman, who was reported missing over the weekend, was rescued Monday morning after her truck tumbled down a 300-foot embankment from the Angeles Forest Highway.

The woman, 56, was driving from Pasadena to Palmdale when she decided to change her usual route due to weather. She was reported missing by her husband at 3 a.m. Monday after his wife failed to return home.

The woman had been ejected from her 1994 Ford Ranger off of mile marker 10.47, Los Angeles County Fire Department officials said.

She suffered severe head trauma and hypothermia and was airlifted to Huntington Memorial Hospital, officials said. She is listed in stable condition.

Her condition is unknown.
