    Officials in Saugus, Massachusetts, said a woman was killed Sunday when the car she was driving crashed through a garage and went down a snow-covered embankment.

    Police and firefighters pulled the driver, a woman whose name was not immediately released, from the vehicle and used a sled to take her to an ambulance. She was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

    Interim Saugus Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti said the crash happened at about 1:30 p.m. No one else was in the car.

    It was not immediately known if snow and freezing rain was a factor in the crash.

    Giorgetti said the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection sent a crew to the scene to help clean up a reported oil leak.
