MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A 30-year-old Moncks Corner man was trapped in a car with a broken neck and other injuries for more than a day after his rental car went off a forest road and rolled down an embankment in western Montana.

Shaun Lee told his story to the media Monday from a Missoula hospital, where he was recovering.

Lee says he was looking for a motel when he took a wrong exit and a few wrong turns and found himself coming down a slope on a dirt road at 12:15 a.m. Aug. 1. He says the car went off the wet road and rolled, leaving him trapped upside-down.

Lee says he yelled and honked the horn in hopes of being found.

At about 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 2, Forest Service employee Benji Hegg spotted Lee's car and called for help.
