A WOMAN was taken to hospital after a serious crash at Byron Bay on Saturday afternoon.

Emergency services including police, NSW Ambulance and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue were called to the scene on Ewingsdale Rd around 3pm.

A spokesman from the rescue helicopter said it was a serious single vehicle rollover.
