Police are appealing for witnesses after a "serious" collision around 7.05pm on the A4061 Rhigos Road north of Treherbert last night, which resulted in one driver being taken to the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, by Air Ambulance.
The incident involved a white Volkswagen Scirocco, which was travelling along Rhigos Road from the direction of Hirwaun towards Treherbert.
The car left the road and plummeted down a steep ravine, leaving the road closed for approximately four hours while police conducted initial investigations.
South Wales Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident, or who was in the area at the time and may have seen the car between 3pm and the time of the collision.
South Wales Police are appealing for information after a fire killed 150 pigeons in Treherbert.
It's believed the pigeon sheds were targeted deliberately, and police are treating the incident as arson.
Around 150 of the 300 pigeons being kept at the site died in the fire.
We are treating this incident very seriously. Considerable damage was caused and the owners were confronted with some awful scenes. The incident has also proved very costly for them, and they have been left distraught at their loss. We believe somebody somewhere can help our investigation, and appeal for them to come forward.

That's the message from a group of health professionals in Wales, who say simply being out in the fresh air can benefit those with medical conditions including depression, diabetes and arthritis.
The Actif Woods Wales project is establishing woodland 'health sessions' for people with a variety of physical and mental health conditions - so far based in and around Aberystwyth and Treherbert.
Activities include gentle exercise, woodwork skills, plant and animal identification, fire-lighting - or simply taking in the natural surroundings.
Katy Harris of the Coed Lleol Partnership, which is helping to run the sessions, said: "We all know that exercise is good for us, but going to the gym isn't for everyone.
"This project has shown that walking or being active in woodlands really can improve health and reduce stress at the same time as building interests, developing skills and having lots of fun."
The project is funded by Forestry Commission Wales and the Countryside Council for Wales, and supported by supported health sector organisations including the National Exercise Referral Scheme and mental health charity Mind.
