A 42-year-old woman from New Jersey plunged her car into the Hudson River Thursday morning in a possible suicide attempt, the NYPD said.     

She was rescued and hospitalized for psychiatric evaluation.     

The woman drove the wrong way on a West Side Highway ramp at about 10 a.m. Thursday.

Another driver who avoided a collision with her watched as she drove through a park, collided with a guard rail and went into the water.     

Police say the woman climbed out of the car and yelled that she made a mistake and needed help.     

Police say the other driver called 911, and two Emergency Services Unit officers arrived quickly. One dove in and rescued her.     

Police said she left some type of suicide note behind.
