A 68-YEAR-OLD woman was hurt in a crash which blocked a main Huddersfield road.
She was driving a Peugeot 206 which was in a crash with a Ford Escort on Woodhead Road at its junction with Carriage Drive, Berry Brow, just after 2pm yesterday.
The crash scene was next to the Laxmi Indian restaurant.
The woman complained of a back injury, which paramedics treated at the scene before firefighters cut her car door off so she could be gently eased out and on to a stretcher.
The woman, who comes from Netherton, had also suffered a cut head.
She was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for further treatment.
The road was closed for just over an hour while the driver was rescued and the badly damaged cars were moved.
