A WOMAN was injured following a crash on a busy North Tyneside road.
Emergency services were called to the A1058 Coast Road near the Bill Mill roundabout in North Shields just after 9.30am this morning.
A red Mitsubishi Colt was travelling eastbound, near to the Norham Road slip road, when it collided with railings.
The driver of the vehicle, a 32-year-old woman, was taken to hospital with a fracture to her arm.
The section of the road, where a fatal accident took place just months earlier, was closed for around five hours for repairs to the railings to be carried out.
Officers are appealing for anyone witnesses to the crash to contact them on 101 ext 69191.
