ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- A woman was killed early Sunday morning when her vehicle crashed off Route 45 in Pomona into thick brush, Ramapo Police said.

The one-car crash, in which the woman was the sole occupant, occurred around 5 a.m. just north of South Mountain Road with Haverstraw police officers quickly arriving at the scene and advised arriving Ramapo PD officers that the woman was unresponsive, according to Ramapo Police.

There was no damage to the vehicle, no skid marks and no signs of trauma to the driver, police said. The car, which was buried in thick brush, was moved to allow officers to remove the woman from the vehicle.

With the assistance of Haverstraw PD units, Ramapo officers were able to remove the  75-year-old from Pomona, from the vehicle and begin CPR, police said.

Spring Hill EMS and Rockland Paramedics responded shortly after and transported the woman to Good Samaritan Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Ramapo PD Detectives and Rockland County BCI were called in to conduct an investigation as was the Rockland County Medical Examiner.
