We are investigating following reports of a hit-and-run collision in St Helens last night, Friday 8th July.
At around 9.30pm we were called to reports a female had been found lying in North Road.
Officers spoke to witnesses at the scene and it is believed that prior to the incident a fight had broken out involving a group of people.
During the disturbance a Ford Fiesta is reported to have been in collision with a number of people. The vehicle is then believed to have left the scene and was found abandoned a short distance away.
A woman in her 30s and a man in his 40s were both taken to hospital with head injuries and a woman in her 40s was taken to hospital with back and facial injuries. None of the injuries are believed to be life threatening.
A 20 year-old woman, a 38 year-old woman and a 46 year-old man have all been arrested on suspicion of affray.
