The Morgan Hill woman and her passenger did not suffer any injuries, according to the CHP. Her boss, however, was none too pleased.
"He was not very happy," CHP officer Elizabeth Addy said. "She's going to be paying that back for quite a long time."
Addy said the driver was coming around a sharp curve when she lost control and hit the embankment.
"The driver said she wasn't speeding but the cause of the crash is still being investigated," Addy said. "People tend to drive pretty fast along Bear Creek."
Bear Creek Road was closed at 3:18 p.m. until 4 p.m. to extricate the vehicle, which was partially blocking the road.
Alcohol was not involved in the incident, according to the CHP. Addy said the driver borrowed the car with the owner's consent.
