Hawthorne firefighters rescued a driver whose car barreled down an embankment and over a wall into Goffle Brook near Route 208 Tuesday night.

The woman was alert and thanking Hawthorne firefighters through tears of joy as they turned a ladder into a makeshift basket and carried her over the wall before she was placed on a gurney and taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

The crash occurred just before 7 p.m. as she tried to turn onto northbound Route 208 from Goffle Road.

Responders from several towns rushed to the scene.
