PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (AP) - A pregnant woman was unscathed in a car crash in Rhode Island that left the vehicle mangled and wrapped around a tree.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2dvSuM9) the crash happened just before 6 a.m. Saturday on Route 24 in Portsmouth.

Portsmouth fire Lt. Allen Levesque says the woman told police her car slid on the wet road, struck a barrier and then spun out. The car then hit a utility pole before sliding down an embankment and slamming into a tree.

Levesque says the passenger side of the car was “literally folded around the tree.”

Levesque says the woman is 15 weeks pregnant and was taken to an area hospital as a precaution.

No other cars were involved.
