PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona authorities say they rescued a seriously injured woman who spent six days in the desert after crashing her car.

The Department of Public Safety said Wednesday that rescuers found the severely dehydrated 53-year-old woman on Oct. 18 after following the vehicle's tracks. A maintenance crew and a rancher spotted the car while working along a highway several miles from the historic Western town of Wickenburg.

The woman's identity and specifics on her injuries weren't released. Authorities say she lost control of her vehicle and it went off the highway Oct. 12.

The department says she stayed inside the car for several days before climbing out and walking toward railroad tracks to get help. Authorities say she didn't get there because of her weakened condition.
