Robin Joyce Fancher Bio
Robin Joyce Fancher was last seen alive leaving her home at the Greentree Apartments in Headland to go to the post office the morning of April 17, police said.
She was reported missing by family a few days later, but her whereabouts remained unknown until Monday when a motorist spotted a wrecked vehicle mostly hidden by brush in a ditch off Campbellton Highway. “It is believed that the crash occurred several days ago, but was not easily visible from the roadway,” the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said in a statement to reporters.
Robin Joyce Fancher, 49, is the Alabama woman whom troopers say was trapped in her car for several days after crashing into a ditch that was not easily seen from the road.
Fancher was last seen on April 17,
according to Chris Watson of e Headland Police Department. She was reported missing two days later, according to the Dothan Eagle. A witness finally spotted her vehicle on Monday, April 22, and called for help. She had crashed into a ditch that was difficult to see from the road.
First responders from five different agencies on Monday spent nearly 90 minutes trying to free Fancher, who was responsive and alert when officers arrived on the scene of the crash.
“The main challenges were going to be where the car was and where the victim was pinned against the driver’s door,” Dothan Fire Battalion Chief Pete Webb told WDHN.
“It was off the road, and it was difficult to get the car to pull around her.”
She was transported to a local hospital for treatment where she remained in stable condition on Tuesday. Webb praised the combined efforts of officers and first responders for successfully rescuing Fancher and ensuring her safety.
An unidentified family member told the Dothan Eagle she was recovering from multiple injuries.
