A three-year-old boy was taken to hospital with minor injuries after a crash in Wakefield.

West Yorkshire Police’s Roads Policing Unit attended Notton Lane after the two-car smash at a junction at around 12.40pm today.

“This is a notorious intersection,” said PC Dave Robson.

The driver of a Skoda Octavia hit a Volkswagen Golf TDI which contained a mother and her two sons, aged eight and three, in the back.

The younger brother was taken to Leeds General Infirmary by ambulance as a precaution.

PC Robson, who attended the scene, is appealing for any witnesses to get in touch.

The four-way intersection is with Chevet Lane.
