Teenagers hurt as car leaves road

Three teenage girls were injured when the car they were travelling in left the road and hit a tree in Cumbria.

The accident, involving a Peugeot 306 driven by a 17-year-old man, happened in Workington early on Saturday.

The vehicle came off Moor Close Road onto a disused railway line, now used as a cycle path.

Two of the girls are 15, the other is 18. One suffered serious arm injuries and remains in hospital, the others were released after treatment.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to contact Cumbria Police.
