Woman rescued on road where man died in 2006

GALICE — A woman and her dog were rescued after her car got stuck in the snow on the narrow mountain road near where a California man died in 2006.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reported that Sophia Latham was apparently trying to drive to the coast from Galice when her car got stuck Friday night on Bear Camp Road.

Latham and her border collie stayed overnight in her car before she hiked about seven miles to get within cell phone range.

Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson freed her car. He says only heavy-duty, four-wheel drive vehicles should attempt the road this time of year.

James Kim of San Francisco died in December 2006 trying to find help for his family when they got stuck just off the same road.
