A three-month-old baby was taken to hospital for observation following a crash between two cars.

The accident happened last night at around 10.45pm in Triq Dun Karm, Birkirkara.

A Police spokesman told TVM that the accident happened when a 22-year-old driver, resident in Birkirkara, lost control of his car, hit a centre strip, hit a lamp post and then ended up on the opposite side of the road. At that moment, another car was passing by and the driver crashed into the vehicle.

The second car was being driven by a 27-year-old man, resident in Birkirkara. His 28-year-old wife, also from Birkirkara, was a passenger, as was the baby.

No one was injured in the accident however the child was taken to hospital for observation.

Members of the Civil Protection Department and Enemalta employees were called to the scene.
