An 18-year-old female is taken to the hospital after a morning accident in Newark.

It happened just after 8 a.m. on Ohio 16.

The Newark Police Department says the driver was traveling west when she lost control of her vehicle, went off the right side of the road, and struck a guardrail.

She was transported to Licking Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

One lane of Ohio 16 remained closed for a little more than a half hour while crews cleared the roadway.

Authorities say slick, snow-covered roads played a role in the crash.
