A WOMAN has been charged with dangerous driving after a car overturned on the Erskine Bridge.

The 56-year-old allegedly caused another vehicle to collide with a crash barrier before flipping on to its roof on Thursday morning.

A 39-year-old woman then had to be removed from the car and was taken to hospital complaining of back pain.

She was later released with no serious injuries but the vehicle was written off.

The crash happened at around 8.30am on the M898 entrance to the Erskine Bridge, causing severe tailback to commuters.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said last week: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 8.38am on Thursday, March 29 to a road traffic collision on M898, Erskine Bridge.

“Operations control mobilised three fire engines to the incident, which involved one car.”

“Crews safely removed one female casualty and passed her into the care of Scottish Ambulance Service personnel. She was thereafter transferred to hospital.

“Firefighters left the scene after ensuring the area was made safe.”

A report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.
