EAST CHATHAM — A Massachusetts woman was injured on Monday morning following a one-car accident in East Chatham.

Diamond Hobson, 26, of Pittsfield was taken to Columbia Memorial Health with minor injuries, Beau Duffy, director of public information for state police, said.

At about 8:50 a.m., a 2019 Mitsubishi was being driven by Hobson northeast on Route 295 in the area of New Concord Road, when the car went off the left side of the road, hit a guardrail and plunged down a 30-foot embankment, overturning next to the Stony Kill, Duffy said.

Hobson was able to call Columbia County 911, who sent East Chatham Fire Company and Chatham Rescue to the scene.

Arriving first responders assisted Hobson in getting back up to the road, where she was examined by paramedics, before they brought her to the hospital in Hudson.

Part of Route 295 was closed, while crews worked to get the car back up the hill. It was towed from the scene.

Canaan and Red Rock fire companies were also sent to the accident, but were canceled after fire officials determined they were not needed.

No tickets were issued, Duffy said. State police investigated.

All firefighters were back in service at 10:10 a.m.
