RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A woman suffered only minor injuries after she unintentionally drove her car over a retaining wall and down into a ditch outside a parking lot, Raleigh police said.

The woman drove over a 30-foot retaining wall in the parking lot of Scholastic Book Warehouse in Raleigh and her car went down about 40 feet into a wooded area, according to officials.

The woman is OK and walked to an ambulance with an EMS crew. She went to the hospital as a precaution.
