IRMO, SC (WIS) -

One person was transported to a local hospital after the car they were driving crashed into a creek on North Royal Tower Drive in the Friars Gate community.

According to Irmo Police Chief Brian Buck, the 18-year-old female driver was driving erratically when her car ran off the road and hit a tree in the ditch.

Buck say the driver then broke a window to get out of her car, collapsed and hit her head on a rock.

The driver was transported to Palmetto Health Richland.

Irmo Police and EMS officials closed the road for several minutes in order to extract the car and the driver.

The road is back open.
