Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

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.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or to make a re­port on­line at crimestop­per­swa.com.au.
