STONY POINT, N.Y. (AP) - A New York woman who drove 75 feet down an embankment in Bear Mountain State Park walked away unscathed.
Stony Point Fire Chief Joseph Robinson says the woman refused medical attention.
The 2008 Nissan ran off Perkins Memorial Drive, off Seven Lakes Drive, in an area with no guardrails. It occurred around 3 p.m. Sunday.
It wasn't clear what caused the car to go off the winding road.
Firefighters used ropes to lower themselves down the steep incline and hoisted the woman on a stretcher to the street.
Robison said the car hit several trees but appeared to be "fixable."
The driver was only identified as a resident of Pearl River in Rockland County.

Members of the community of the Riverdale section of the Bronx gathered above the site of the crash of a metro-north train to pray for the injured and the dead. Four passengers were killed and more than 60 injured when the commuter train heading to Manhattan from Poughkeepsie derailed Sunday morning near the Spuyten Duyvil station.
Commuters who rely on Metro-North trains to get to and from New York City will need to make adjustments to their regular travel plans. Expect reduced service on the Hudson Line between Poughkeepsie and Yonkers following Sunday's deadly train derailment in the Bronx.
