Heather Locklear Posts on Instagram After Being Hospitalized

ACTRESS Heather Locklear has been hospitalised after reportedly crashing her Porshe into a ditch in Los Angeles.

The 55-year-old TV and movie star was involved in a single-vehicle crash Thursday, said TMZ and confirmed by USA Today.

"No alcohol or drugs were detected as the investigation revealed she was not driving under the influence", USA Today said.

Heather - who is, perhaps, best known for her starring roles on "Dynasty" and "Melrose Place" - has a history of substance abuse, as well as being involved in road incidents.

She was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription pills in 2008, and again in 2010 for a misdemeanor hit-and-run.

Locklear was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, according to police. "We have to ask the questions if you were wearing your seat belt and you were on your cell phone", a public information officer told Entertainment Tonight, but it appeared that Locklear wasn't breaking any laws that caused her crash.

Locklear has kept a low profile this year since announcing she was "working on tying up some loose ends".

Locklear was also said to be "alert and cooperative" with the deputies.

The actress's latest incident comes shortly after her first public appearance in months on September 9, when she was seen in Beverly Hills attending a Tex-Mex Fiesta event at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. She was released the next day.

Recently, in January, many speculated Locklear had entered rehab.
