ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

A woman was taken to the hospital early Thursday morning after a wreck in Limestone County.

The wreck happened around 2 a.m. on Highway 72 just west of Athens. State troopers said the woman lost control of her vehicle and crashed.

Because of the way her vehicle landed, troopers said the woman was trapped inside her car for about 30 minutes. Firefighters were able to pull her out and she was transported to Huntsville Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Westbound traffic was stopped for almost an hour while emergency crews responded to the wreck.
