A mother and baby had a narrow escape after their car was run off the road by an oncoming lorry, police revealed yesterday.
A 27-year-old woman, from Blythe Bridge, Staffordshire, was driving a silver Peugeot 206 along Roughcote Lane, in Caverswall, Staffordshire, when the car was forced off the road at about noon on Sunday.
The vehicle careered up an embankment and landed on its side, while the white lorry failed to stop at the scene.
The woman managed to clamber out of the car to rescue her 14-month-old daughter, who was in a child seat in the rear passenger seat.
Both were taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire in Stoke-onTrent for treatment for minor injuries.
Anyone with information is asked to call 08453 30 31 32.
