The driver said she spent the first couple of days inside the vehicle, before she was finally forced to leave and seek help.

DPS a trooper responded to the scene and searched the area but didn't find the woman.

A woman was rescued six days after having a road accident in which her automobile plunged 50 feet and remained hanging in a tree near Wickenburg, Arizona, the state Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported.

Moralez, his rancher brother Dave Moralez and a co-worker were corraling a cow on the highway when they saw a damaged fence, a mangled auto and footprints leading from the vehicle, Reuters reported. They followed the tracks and discovered the severely dehydrated woman, her eyes swollen, wearing a T-shirt, shorts and flip flops, suffering from broken ribs, a dislocated shoulder and a head injury, Moralez told a local NBC affiliate.

"We started asking her a bunch of questions: 'How long have you been here?"

"She was in the fetal position, and there was no movement", Arizona transportation worker Zach Moralez told the AP.

She survived on grass and water during the ordeal, police said.

The pilot later pleaded guilty before a court to being over the legal limit, and is expected to be sentenced on November 29. JAL said from now on it will involve airport staff in alcohol checks rather than getting pilots to test each other.

The woman, whose name was not disclosed, lost control of her vehicle on October 12 on a rain-slicked road near Wickenburg, Arizona, about 65 miles (105 km) north of Phoenix, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

She was taken to hospital.

The woman told the trooper she stayed inside the vehicle after the October 12 crash for several days before climbing out, Fox 10 Phoenix reported. "If we hadn't stopped here and then noticed the fence then I don't know if anyone would've found her and if she would've made it a couple more days".

DPS spokesman Quentin Mehr said the woman is declining all media requests and did not give any details about her current condition.

She managed to travel 500 yards (460m) before collapsing in a dried out river bed.

In a statement, Arizona Department of Public safety director Frank Milstead said the efforts of the workers, farmer and trooper were "exemplary".
