A teenager was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Monday afternoon after her vehicle overturned and slid into a building in north Lincoln, a Lincoln Fire and Rescue official said.

Just after 1:30 p.m., an Oldsmobile sedan driven by Emilee Mudge, 17, overturned and crashed into a building at 42nd and Vine streets, Battalion Chief Jim Bopp said.

According to LPD Capt. Todd Kocian, Mudge said she was involved in a "road rage" altercation. 

Mudge said she cut off a white Toyota while traveling west on Vine. As she continued, the vehicle kept engaging her, Kocian said.

When the Toyota cut her off, she said she overcorrected and lost control of her vehicle.

Rescue crews needed to use a strut to hold up the front of the building so they could get inside to Mudge, and cut open the roof of the vehicle.

She was taken to Bryan West Campus for treatment.
