SPENCER, TN (WSMV) -

A woman who was trapped in a cave in Van Buren has been taken to a Chattanooga hospital.

Authorities say the woman was with a group of about seven people when she somehow got trapped in a cave.

The woman, 40, is from Alabama.

The call came in around 3:10 p.m. Saturday, and crews were finally able to get her out around 11 p.m., according to officials.

We know the woman was injured, but officials say she was talking and coherent while they were taking her to the hospital.
