Car crashes into ditch near Herndon and Willow avenues

The Fresno BeeMarch 6, 2014 

A woman was taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon after she crashed her SUV into a ditch, Clovis police said.

The woman, whose age or identity weren't released, was behind the wheel of the SUV about 3:40 p.m. heading north on Willow Avenue approaching Herndon Avenue.

Witnesses told officers the woman ran a red light at the intersection and struck a truck that was headed westbound. That happened inside Clovis city limits.

The impact sent the SUV spinning out of control, ultimately crashing her vehicle into the ditch that runs along the west side of Willow north of Herndon, inside Fresno city limits. The SUV ended up on its side.

The woman, who was conscious, was taken to a local hospital. Police at the scene did not know if she sustained any injuries.
