A 41-YEAR-OLD was taken to hospital after her car went into a ditch on Wednesday night.

Emergency services were called to Fiddler's Ferry Road, around 50 metres from The Eight Towers roundabout after the woman's Red Lexus ended up hitting a lamppost and landing in a ditch.

No other vehicle was involved in the crash around 8.30pm.

She was taken to Warrington Hospital as a precaution but police say her injuries were not serious.

The road was closed both ways with traffic backed up in Warrington and Widnes.

Road closures were lifted at 10pm.
