— A motorist was injured this morning after apparently driving through a road barrier and over an embankment in the town of Amsterdam.

An investigator is on the scene probing the one-car crash and details were not immediately available, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's department.

Onlookers at the scene said firefighters pulled a woman out of the vehicle before she was placed on a MedFlight helicopter and rushed to a hospital.

The crash shut down the westbound lanes of state Route 5 just east of the City of Amsterdam this morning.
