A 44-year-old missing woman from Modesto was found unresponsive but stable inside the "suspicious vehicle" that shut down the 91 and 71 freeways in Corona for hours on Friday afternoon.Corona police called in a hazardous-materials team and a bomb squad after responding to reports of a suspicious U-Haul truck that had been parked off Green River Road for several days. "The windows were covered and an unknown type of fluid was coming out of the cab," according to ABC Local.

A remote-controlled robot smashed the front passenger-side window. That's when firefighters found the woman inside. She was unresponsive but was reported in stable condition in an area hospital. Family members said she has a history of schizophrenia.

No hazardous materials were found.
