A motorist was rushed to hospital after his car overturned and skidded to a halt on its roof.

Emergency crews were called to an area close to Todd Road, near the back of St Helens Central railway station, shortly before 11.30am on Monday (September 23).

Adjacent to Parr Street, Todd Road is just a stone’s throw away from a number of works as well as St Helens Retail Park.

Nobody was trapped in the vehicle but firefighters from Whiston and Belle Vale were soon on hand to make sure it was safe.

The driver was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Whiston Hospital for further treatment.

The extent and seriousness of his injuries were not known.
