SALT LAKE CITY - The cleanup is taking a while at the scene where a car ended up pinned under a semi-truck. It looks nothing short of amazing that someone wasn't killed.

A semi headed through the intersection of 900 West and 1700 South around 5 a.m., the driver says on a green light. A red car slammed into it. Lt. James Tracy says the car was dragged east of the intersection under the semitrailer for about 200 feet.

The car was stuck underneath the semi, and it took crews about an hour to remove the woman who was driving it. She was transported to Intermountain Medical Center in serious condition. She has since been upgraded to stable condition.

The car now has been removed from under the semi, but the intersection remains closed.

Investigators hope surveillance video from nearby buildings will provide clues to what exactly happened.
