MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - A 21-year-old Milford, KS woman may have spent up to 8 hours trapped in her SUV before the single-car accident was discovered. Authorities say Alyssa Johnson suffered serious injuries from the rollover in Manhattan.

According to RCPD, crews were called to the intersection of Tuttle Creek Boulevard and North 48th Street around 7:31 a.m Monday. However, authorities believe the crash actually happened around 11:30 Sunday night.

When they arrived, they found a 2004 Ford Explorer, driven by Johnson; she apparently had failed to negotiate a curve, flipped and ended up in the ditch.

Johnson was air-lifted to Stormont Vail in Topeka with critical injuries.
