LANSDALE, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) — An elderly woman was trapped in her car for over an hour after she crashed into a Montgomery County apartment building.

The crash took place along the 1000 block of South Valley Forge Road Saturday afternoon.

Photos show the woman's car almost fully in a vertical position -- stuck between two walls at the Brittany Pointe Estates apartment building.

The woman behind the wheel, police say, had veered off the road just prior to the crash.

The Upper Gwynedd Township Fire Department says police were able to safely remove the woman from the vehicle, before they arrived.

According to officials, the woman did sustain an injury, but it was said to have been minor.

There is no word on what caused the driver to veer off the road at this time.
