Have your say

A BABY was injured when the car he was travelling in was forced off the road, police say.

The 11-month-old’s mother was driving a Ford Ranger from Carlby towards the crossroads of Essendine Road and Pickworth Road.

The woman told officers she was forced off the road by a small silver coloured car.

The Ranger rolled three times before it came to a stop.

The silver car did not stop following the incident, which happened at 3.20pm on Saturday.

The woman and her baby were taken to Peterborough City Hospital with minor injuries.

There was another collision in Carlby last night (Sunday), following which a man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

A silver Peugeot 206 and a blue Vauxhall Astra crashed near the turning to Braceborough on the A6121 at 8.30pm.

The driver of the Peugeot was taken to Peterborough City Hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the Astra was arrested after testing positive to a breath test. He has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Anyone with information on either incident can contact police on 101.
