THREE women have been taken to hospital today after a four-car crash in North Yorkshire.

The collision happened just before 1pm on the A658 between North Rigton and Huby, near Harrogate, with the women - who were all travelling in a Fiat Panda 500 - being cut out of the car by firefighters.

The driver, who is about 40, suffered leg, hip and neck injuries, with one of the passengers being treated for shock and the other for face and rib injuries. They were all taken to hospital but their condition has not yet been confirmed.
