Woman hurt after car crashes down embankment
LEOMINSTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- A woman was transported to the hospital after her car crashed through a guardrail and fell off a 100-foot embankment in Leominster Tuesday.
The 48-year-old woman was pulled from the wreckage after the car plowed through a guardrail and went airborne.
A neighbor heard the crash and was the first person to come to her rescue.
“I heard a loud noise, went down there and ran down the hill and sure enough there was one lady in there. She was still alert, talking and whatnot. But it was kind of a hairy moment for a little while and police eventually showed up. She seemed okay, she was nervous, scared, bleeding from the head, nose, mouth,” Paul Frisch.
Leominster police and fire crews arrived on scene and pulled her from the mangled car. She was taken to UMass Memorial Hospital in Worcester.
Neighbors say something like this has happened in that area before.
“If you don’t know the area and you’re flying down the street, I don’t think that would be a good idea,” said Bobby Davidson, a neighbor.
It’s until how fast the woman was driving or where she was headed at the time.
The extent of her injuries is unknown.
