Woman Calls Orem Police To Free Her From Her Locked Car

Last Update: 1:12 pm

Automatic car features are supposed to make life easier for motorists, but they may be leaving some people without the know-how to do things the old-fashioned way. That’s what happened to a driver in Utah County who became trapped inside her own car.

A woman called Orem police Friday afternoon needing help because her battery died and she was locked inside her car.

When police arrived, they found the woman sitting in the car, unable to get herself out. She couldn’t hear the officers instructions through the rolled-up windows so she motioned to them to call her on her cell phone, according to police.

Once officers were able to talk to the woman on the phone, they were able to tell her how to manually operate the slide lock mechanism on the inside door panel to open the door and free herself.

“I'm just glad she had a cell phone to call for help,” an officer said.

Words sort of fail.

They should have tried to get her out with a hanger.

There's a little clip in a recent Family Guy episode where Peter locks himself inside his car. And he tries to use a hanger from the inside to open the door on the outside.

I'll see if I can find that on YouTube.

A wire one?;)Of course. Would be tough to do with a wooden one.

Replace the beginning of my post with "They should of tried...". I think that's the grammatically correct way. ;) :D

I hate both of you.Shouldn't you be running somewhere?
