Firefighters rescued a woman — and her pet ferret — from a car that crashed into a small ravine Thursday in Wareham.

The woman had accidentally driven off a bridge on Barker Road, officials said. She was taken via MedFlight to Rhode Island Hospital, and her condition is unknown.

The car was on its side in the ravine when first responders arrived, according to the fire department, and firefighters cut through its windshield to save the woman.

Her pet ferret was uninjured and is being cared for by an Animal Control Officer, according to the Wareham Fire Department.
