CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A woman was taken to the hospital Thursday morning after emergency crews say she hit a truck, ran off the road and crashed into a tree.

The crash was reported on Interstate 485 early Thursday morning.

Troopers with the NC Highway Patrol say a woman was driving an SUV when she hit a truck in the right lane, causing her to lose control of her vehicle.

The SUV went over the embankment and hit a tree.

When emergency crews arrived on scene they say the woman was on the passenger side of the vehicle and denied she had been driving.

She was transported to Carolinas Medical Center as a precaution.

Troopers have not said what, if any charges the woman will face but believe the woman had been drinking and driving.
