Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Yourviews -

THREE patients went to hospi­tal fol­low­ing a headon col­li­sion in Run­corn.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to Dares­bury Ex­press­way at around 3.15pm last Wed­nes­day as the Weekly News was go­ing to print.

The route was shut be­tween Pitts Heath Lane and the A56 Ch­ester Road.

A Cheshire po­lice spokesman said the col­li­sion in­volved a black Peu­geot 2008 and a sil­ver Hyundai i20.

He said two oc­cu­pants had been trapped in one of the cars.

A North West Am­bu­lance Ser­vice spokeswoman said two am­bu­lances, a se­nior clin­i­cian, a rapid re­sponse ve­hi­cle and haz­ardous area re­sponse team were de­ployed to the scene.

One ca­su­alty had a head in­jury, while an­other’s leg was dam­aged.

Three patients in all were taken to War­ring­ton Hospi­tal.

Cheshire Fire And Res­cue Ser­vice (CFRS) said one ap­pli­ance from Lymm and one from Run­corn at­tended.

A CFRS spokesman said: “Crews sta­bilised one of the ve­hi­cles and re­moved one of the doors to en­able them to re­lease the woman in­side.

“The woman was then handed over to the care of paramedics.”
