Baltimore County fire crews rescued a woman who lost control of her car Monday morning on the outer loop of Interstate 695 near Towson, drove off the road and landed in a pond.

A fire dispatcher received a call shortly before 11:30 a.m. that a vehicle had gone off the highway between the Dulaney Valley Road and York Road exits, landing partially submerged in a sediment pond.

Emergency crews from Texas Fire Station 17 and Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company 30 extended ladders down to the car and helped the woman climb out onto a platform.

Medics treated her at the scene for minor injuries and took her to St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, according to Elise Armacost, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Fire Department.
