A woman was taken to hospital in Yellowknife Friday night after smashing her pickup truck into a guardrail on Latham Island.

Her truck hit the curb on Otto Drive near the entrance to N'dilo, taking down part of the guardrail, and damaging a street sign.

Officials on scene escorted her to Stanton Territorial Hospital in Yellowknife.

It's believed alcohol was a factor in the crash. There is no word yet on whether charges have been laid.
