RINGTOWN – A 15-year-old girl was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries after she drove through and around someone’s yard before launching the car down an embankment.

The crash happened around 4:30pm Wednesday in the 200 block of East Main Street in Ringtown.

A neighbor’s security camera captured part of the incident, showing a Mitsubishi sedan drive east on East Main Street, into a yard before apparently flooring it and turning left.

She completed a loop, striking a fire pit, before crossing her own tire tracks and launching the sedan over an embankment and into a tree.

Firefighters at the scene said she was able to get out of the vehicle and back up the 15-foot embankment herself.
