BAY VILLAGE, Ohio– It was a driving lesson gone wrong Saturday night.

During the lesson, at around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, the 23-year-old was backing out of the parking spot, had a moment of panic and kept her foot on the gas.
The car landed on its roof at the bottom of the 54-foot drop. Crews cut down trees and branches to get to the vehicle.
The driver was taken to the hospital with head injuries and bruising.
Police did not issue any citations.
