TWO children were taken to hospital for checks after the car they were travelling in was in a crash on a dual carriageway.
Two boys, aged 18 months and 11 years old, were in a VW Golf that was in a collision with a Citroen Picasso on Marina Way, Hartlepool, yesterday afternoon.
The collision happened close to the exit of the High Point Retail Park at around 2.30pm.
The force of the crash caused the Picasso to spin on to the opposite side of the carriageway.
A woman passenger from the Golf was also taken to hospital as a precaution.
The police and fire services also attended the scene.
Marina Way was closed for a short time causing delays.
