Kevin Bell's ordeal began on September 17 as he and his girlfriend, Nikki Reed, were traveling through southeast Indiana on their way to the town of Seymour.

Bell lost control of the SUV on Route 50, sending the car about 100 feet down an embankment and into a tree, notes The Washington Post.

Reed is believed to have died immediately after the crash and Bell's injuries prevented him from getting out of the car.

On Tuesday, he was finally able to free himself.

Police say Bell will likely make a full recovery.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
