Maine women survived days in a snow-covered SUV and -15 temperatures


  • Two Maine women set out to visit the Maine Mall on Feb. 21.
  • The women got lost and then their vehicle was stuck in snow on an unplowed road.
  • They spent days inside the SUV before they were rescued Sunday.

Two Maine women spent days trapped in a snow-covered SUV as temperatures plummeted to -15 degrees before search crews found them safe this week.

Kimberly Pushard and Angela Bussell were headed to the Maine Mall on Feb. 21, about 30 miles from where they live in Topsham, Maine, said Topsham Police Chief Marc Hagan.

The women were traveling in a red 2012 Jeep Compass when they got lost and became the subjects of an alert for missing vulnerable adults. The SUV eventually got stuck in deep snow, forcing the women to spend multiple nights inside the truck.

Officials were able to get videos from local businesses as the women stopped on their trip and to track their cell phone movement.
