Natalie Huddleston: ” I started to back up when I heard a “thunk. I was kind of sticking up in the air, kind of disoriented. (I) hit the gas, nothing happened. No contact with anything in the back wheels. They were spinning. I felt a rocking motion and I felt myself sinking.

That’s when she decided to call Masley inside the salon for help. “I said, ‘Help, look outside, look outside,’ and she came out and she was able to help me climb out the driver’s side window because I couldn’t get the door open and we sat and watched my car go deeper and deeper and now you can’t see it. It’s gone.”
