Two people were taken to hospital following a horrific crash on the Formby Bypass which left one car rolled onto its side. The accident happened at the notorious Hightown turn off yesterday, Friday 23rd December at approximately 12:30pm.

The driver of a Kia Rio is being treated for serious injuries, while the driver of a Citroen Picasso has also suffered minor injuries.

Police, fire and ambulance services all attended the crash and a stretch of the road was closed off for several hours. Police divert traffic away from the scene by blocking off New End Lane and the Formby bypass.

Fire officers were needed to cut the roof off one of the cars after it became overturned in the crash.

Drivers between Southport and Liverpool had lengthy delays on one of the busiest traffic days of the year.

Officers closed off New End Lane and Moss Lane as a result of the incident.

A spokesperson for North West Ambulance Service said: “A 30-year-old woman and 60-year-old man have been taken to Aintree University Hospital: the female with leg injuries, the male with chest injuries.”

We really do hope that everyone involved is alright, especially at this time of year.
