COLLINGSWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was briefly trapped inside a car that crashed into a southern New Jersey waterway.

The single-car accident occurred around 3:40 a.m. Saturday on North Park Drive in Collingswood.

Authorities say the male driver lost control of the car, which left the roadway and struck a tree before it ended up partially in the Cooper River. The driver was able to quickly escape the vehicle, but his female passenger had to be pulled from the car.

Both were taken to hospitals with undisclosed injuries that are not considered life-threatening. The man was treated and released, but the woman was listed in stable condition.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
