MARGATE — A woman was transported to the hospital Wednesday afternoon after the SUV she was driving flipped onto its side on Jerome Avenue, authorities said.
Firefighters and police arrived at the scene in the westbound lanes between Ventnor and Winchester avenues about 2:35 p.m. They found the car, a Suzuki XL-7, flipped onto the driver’s side, police said.
Firefighters cut out the glass from the car’s windshield to rescue the woman inside, fire Chief Dan Adams said.
The woman was taken to Shore Medical Center in Somers Point. Police and fire officials did not release the name or age of the victim and did not describe the severity of her injuries.
The crash is under investigation, police said.
Officials blocked off the right two lanes as the car was removed from the road and glass was swept from the scene.
There were tire tracks on the sidewalk, and a tree had a significant amount of bark removed from its side facing the street, revealing fresh wood.
The two lanes were reopened about 3:20 p.m.
