Heather Locklear hospitalized after driving Porsche into a ditch

Actress Heather Locklear was hospitalized after driving her Porsche into a ditch in California, according to a report.

The 55-year-old former “T.J. Hooker” star had the single-car wreck just before 6 p.m. Thursday in Thousand Oaks on Country Valley Road, cops said.

“Her vehicle left the road and went down into an embankment,” Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said.

Locklear was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, according to police.

No drugs or alcohol are believed to have been involved in the crash, police said.

“She was alert and cooperative with deputies” after the incident, according to Buschow.

The actress has struggled with drug and alcohol abuse for years.

In 2008, she checked into a rehab following a DUI arrest and then again in 2010.

In January 2012, Locklear was hospitalized after allegedly ingesting prescription drugs with alcohol.
