SIX people were taken to hospital following a three-car collision in Uttoxeter at the weekend.
One woman was airlifted to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire with chest and back injuries following the crash on Sunday morning, when the car she was travelling in went down an embankment off Ashbourne Road.
The driver of the car suffered injuries to her chest and face, and two teenage girls who were sat in the back were hurt by their seat belts. All were taken by land ambulance to the university hospital, an ambulance service spokesman said in a statement.
A 17-year-old girl, who was travelling in another car, was taken to Burton's Queen's Hospital after suffering a neck injury.
An 11-year-old boy, who was a passenger in the third car, had seatbelt injuries, but was treated at the science and discharged by ambulance crews.
Fire crews and police also attended the incident, at 9.35am, with fire fighters from Abbots Bromley and Uttoxeter among those which went along.
The road was closed until 11.30am while the vehicles were recovered.
