A TWO-CAR crash left eight peo­ple in­clud­ing two chil­dren in hos­pi­tal.

South Wales Po­lice ar­rested the 17-year-old male driver of one of the ve­hi­cles fol­low­ing the crash.

A Welsh Am­bu­lance Ser­vice spokesman said they sent four crews in emer­gency ve­hi­cles and a para­medic in a rapid re­sponse ve­hi­cle to the scene on Cwm­bach Road in Aber­dare at around 3.45pm on Satur­day. Crews took six adults and two chil­dren to Prince Charles Hos­pi­tal, Merthyr Tyd­fil, with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries. The crash in­volved a Ford Galaxy and an Alfa Romeo. A po­lice spokesman said the 17-year-old driver of the Alfa Romeo was charged with driv­ing with­out due care.

One eye­wit­ness said the road was closed for a pe­riod of time fol­low­ing the crash.
