Chestnut Ridge firefighters pulled a woman from her wrecked car Tuesday in Donegal Township.

The woman was traveling east on the Pennsylvania Turnpike when she lost control around 6:30 a.m. during a rainstorm, officials said. The car left the highway, drove up an embankment, hit several trees and smashed through a security fence before stopping several hundred feet away in the village of Kregar. The woman called 911 for help, officials said.

She was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. State police are investigating.
