(WXIA ) It's a tale of two construction sites: one side saying it was dangerous, neglectful, and careless.

The other side saying it was safely following the rules.

Elysia Morris was driving her 2010 BMW on Rockland Road in DeKalb County.

She was dropping her son off at his grandpa's house while she headed to an appointment.

On the way there, she saw the residential street was heavy with construction equipment but says there were no signs, no flaggers, no cones.

When a truck began driving toward her she said she veered left to avoid a possible collision and her car got stuck in fresh, wet concrete.

The construction company said the concrete would cure in an hour and she said a tow truck that responded wanted her to sign a waiver saying the county wasn't responsible. When she refused, the concrete dried around her car.

Workers eventually used a jackhammer to remove the BMW.

Morris has hired an attorney and plans to take her fight to court.
