DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Crews had to pull a car out of a hole in the road after a woman drove into a Dayton construction zone on Wednesday morning.

Police said a 42-year-old woman driving a silver car struck several signs before driving through the intersection of South Jersey Street and Burkhardt Avenue. Workers ran up to the car, waving their arms and signaling the driver to stop. The car then continued into the intersection and landed nose-first into an eight-foot-deep trench in the road.
