Sherwood, Oregon (CNN) - Investigators in Oregon are trying to figure out how this pickup truck got lodged 10 feet up a tree.
The truck was spotted Sunday morning near a highway in Sherwood.
Authorities used heat sensors to make sure no one was inside.
They say it appears the truck had been empty for some time.
A towing company was called in to remove it. Scott Gunderson the tow truck driver said, "Pretty impressive. Had to have been going a high rate of speed, went through the ditch, hit a perfect ramp and to launch itself about ten feet up the tree and stay in the tree was pretty impressive."
The driver, 19-year-old Emily Van Vleck, was cited for hit-and-run and criminal mischief.
Just how the truck ended up in the tree remains unclear.
