AVON, CT (WFSB) -

A runaway ramp installed in Avon saved the live of a driver who lost control of their car Friday.

Officials said a car on Avon Mountain Road lost control of its brakes.

The driver used the runaway truck ramp that was installed after a fatal accident in 2005.

Damage to the car was minor and driver and passenger were not injured.
