Texas police rescued a trapped driver who landed upside down in a creek after her car went off a bridge early Monday.

The crash happened at around 2:30 a.m., and Denton police responded to a call stemming from the incident, WFAA-TV reports. When officers reached the scene, they discovered the car upside down in the creek and partly submerged in the water.

No one else was in the car, and the woman was treated at the scene for her injuries. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
