A WOMAN and a five-month-old baby were taken to hospital after a car crashed into bollards near a pedestrian crossing.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on the High Street in Newton-le-Willows shortly before 11.45am on Sunday (July 15).

By the time they arrived, the woman and the baby were already out of the car.

Paramedics took both casualties to Warrington Hospital for checks.

Meanwhile, firefighters made the car safe and contacted St Helens Council about the damage to the bollards.

Crews from Newton and St Helens remained at the scene for about an hour.
