A woman was taken to a hospital after a crash in east St. Paul on Monday.

According to St. Paul Police, officers responded to the crash near Seventh Street East and White Bear Avenue at 6:18 p.m. There, officers found a 23-year-old woman lying on the sidewalk and writhing in pain.

Police said the woman had been driving a gray Suzuki SUV east on Seventh Street when she rolled into the intersection, struck a Lexus and was ejected from the SUV.

The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of a laceration to her left thigh and a head injury but was expected to survive. A blood draw was also performed to see if she was impaired, as officers found an empty beer bottle in her vehicle, police said.
