A retired Seddon woman was admitted to hospital after crashing her car at the Awatere Bridge yesterday.
Seddon chief fire officer Keiron Hebberd said the woman was driving towards Seddon when she hit the barrier at the entry to the bridge and rolled her car about midday.
When firefighters arrived, the car was back on its wheels, blocking one lane of State Highway 1.
Mr Hebberd said the woman did not have to be cut out of the car and was in good spirits, but the car would probably be written off.
The woman was taken to Wairau Hospital where she was reported yesterday to be in a stable condition.
