A WOMAN has been taken to hospital after a crash between a lorry and a car that shut the A41 tonight.

The accident happened on the Bicester-bound carriageway between junction 9 of the M40 and the Bicester Little Chef roundabout.

An emergency services spokesman said the car ended up in a ditch and then caught fire.

A woman was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford but her injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

The road has just re-opened.
