The officer was able to get the 21-year-old female driver out of the car and to safety. Moments afterwards, the officer says the car became completely engulfed in flames.
Carver Fire extinguished the fire, and Carver EMS personnel transported the woman to South Shore Hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, police said.
Upon further investigation, authorities learned that the car was traveling south on Main Street when it left the roadway, struck a utility pole and came to rest in the woods where it caught fire.
No one else was hurt in the incident, police said.
The driver's name is not being released yet, but she was issued a citation and will be summoned to court on several motor vehicle related charges.
It is unclear if she has an attorney.
