She was trapped in a green Daewoo Lanos following a collision with a grey VW Golf.
Three people from the Golf were taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital on spinal boards and two were released later that day.
The third, believed to be from Coleford, was kept overnight for observation, and Gloucestershire Police inspector Tony Fisk said they were not in a serious condition.
The road was shut while emergency services dealt with the crash, which took place just after 3pm.
On the Forest side of the collision, traffic was diverted up Oakle Street, while HGVs were sent through Cinderford on the A4151 to the A4136 and told to re-join the A40 at Huntley.
Traffic on the Gloucester side was diverted through Over, away from the A48 to remain on the A40.
