TAUNTON'S Obridge Viaduct was closed for the second time in a day (Thursday, September 20) and a woman was taken to hospital following a car crash on the bridge.

Police closed the road from the Wickes roundabout to Priorswood roundabout, although the road was re-opened by around 11pm.

The strong winds and heavy rainfall caused large puddles in parts of the road such as Priorswood roundabout.

A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service, said: "We were called at 8.35pm to reports of a three vehicle crash. 

"One female patient suffered minor injuries.

"We attended with one ambulance and one rapid response vehicle.

"The patient was taken to Musgrove Park Hospital for treatment."
