— A woman survived after her car plunged 25 feet down a ravine in east Raleigh early Thursday morning.

Around 6 a.m., crews responded to the 3000 block of Business Park Drive, near Interstate 440 and Poole Road. Officials said a woman was trying to park in a parking lot when she accidentally hit her gas pedal in reverse, sending her car through a fence and down a 25-foot ravine.

The car landed on all four wheels, officials said, and the woman was not severely injured. She was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

At 7 a.m., crews were working to remove the car.
