NORA SPRINGS (KWWL) -  A tow truck driver has helped free a woman who was pinned in her wrecked car on an icy highway in northern Iowa.
   The accident occurred around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday on U.S. Highway 18 near Nora Springs. The Iowa State Patrol says the woman was driving west when she lost control of her vehicle. It rolled at least four times and landed upside down in the eastbound lanes. One of the driver's arms went out the car's sunroof, pinning her inside the wreckage.
   Trooper Keith Duenow says the tow driver from Scott's Towing and Auto Body in Rockford carefully lifted up the woman's vehicle, freeing her. She was taken to a hospital in Mason City.
   Duenow says speed and icy roads appear to have been factors in the crash.
