Children airlifted after car hits tree
TWO children were flown to Princess Margaret Hospital for treatment after a car hit a tree in Toodyay on Friday night.
A six-year-old girl in the car suffered a fractured leg and an eight-year-old boy received a broken arm in the crash about 500m northeast of Lovers Lane.
Northam police said the driver (37) of the Toyota Yaris was heading northeast when he failed to negotiate a right-hand bend, left the sealed road and hit a tree. He had non-life threatening injuries. Police said an 11-week-old baby also in the car escaped injury.
The driver and the baby boy were taken by St John Ambulance to Midland Hospital.
Police attended the accident about 9.50pm and would like to speak to anyone who saw the accident or the vehicle before the crash.
