The car was located on a side street that hadn’t been plowed making attempts to reach her more difficult. A neighbor named Stephen Mackey, told The Associated Press, “he called authorities to alert them to the woman’s status. He said she had bought a home on the street, but it was condemned, so she had been living in her car. She had refused offers of assistance at the beginning of the storm.”
