SOUTHINGTON - A woman was taken to an area hospital Thursday after the SUV she was driving left the road and hit a tree and a fence.

Police, firefighters and an ambulance responded around 2:1p p.m., in the area of 85 N. Main St., where a Chevrolet Equinox had jumped the curb and struck a small tree. It continued into a wrought-iron fence, taking out a chunk of it.

The woman, the sole occupant, was unconscious when firefighters arrived, according to Battalion Chief Eric Heath. Firefighters worked for about 10 minutes to remove both driver-side doors in their attempt to get her out.

She regained consciousness before being taken to the hospital, Heath said.

Heath said the injuries the woman sustained were not life-threatening.

The crash closed North Main Street from Merrell Avenue to Riccio Way for less than an hour. The SUV had to be towed.
