A CAR and a HGV collided at a junction of the Rainford bypass on Thursday.

Emergency services were called to where the A570 meets Mill Lane at around 3.55pm after a Vauxhall Corsa and a heavy-goods vehicle were involved in a collision.

The female driver of the Corsa suffered a severe laceration to her forehead. First aid was initially given at the scene before she was taken to Whiston Hospital. Fire crews attended as diesel was leaking from the HGV but the road was not blocked and lane closures were not necessary.

St Helens Council was asked to send workmen to clear up some of the debris resulting from the incident.
