A WOMAN was taken to hospital after a crash in Burnley Road, Colne, yesterday.

The two-car collision happened near Phillips Lane Chippy shortly before 4pm.

The injured woman, who was driving one of the cars involved, was cut free with the help of the fire service and ambulance personnel.

She was treated for minor injuries in hospital and the road re-opened within an hour. The other driver, also a woman, was not injured.

It was the second car crash in Burnley Road inside three days after a four-car smash closed the road for four hours on Sunday afternoon.
