Officials are trying to determine what caused a woman to crash her car into a fence in an Attleboro neighborhood.
The crash happened near Parker Street around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
According to the Attleboro Fire Department, the woman was impaled in the shoulder by a piece of fence post. It took emergency crews approximately 15 minutes to extricate the woman from her vehicle.
The victim was then transported to Rhode Island Hospital and taken straight to the operating room. As of 9 p.m., she was still in surgery.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
Neighbors told Eyewitness News the woman was driving alone when she crashed into the fence, causing a piece of the fencing to pierce the front of the car’s windshield. Neighbors also said it seemed the woman was bleeding profusely from the neck.
There is no word on the woman’s condition or what could have caused the crash.
