A vehicle crash sends one woman to the hospital early on Saturday morning. She's lucky to be alive, according to the Houston Fire Department.

Her vehicle slammed into a metal pole so hard that her front left tire ended up in the driver's seat, according to firefighters. 

Emergency crews needed more than an hour to remove her from the metal rubble of her vehicle.

It is unclear why she lost control of the Toyota sedan that was traveling southbound on North Wayside Drive in northeast Houston.

The driver's name was released and her condition is unknown at this time.
