The woman was driving. She tried to make a turn and almost hit a truck, overcorrected and went into an embankment, overcorrected again, and the car flipped over and landed in the roadway. She was taken to Rideout Hospital in Marysville. She apparently changed drivers with the suspect who took the car. He got away. Nevada City Police are handling the case.
