Three people were injured late on Tuesday evening when a car crashed into the front gate of a home in Għaxaq.

The incident happened at around 11pm on Triq Għar Dalam, when a 24-year-old Birżebbuġa resident driving a Volkswagen Golf lost control of her car and ended up crashing. 

Two passengers, a 26-year-old woman from Birżebbuġa and a 32-year-old Icelandic man, were with her at the time. 

Civil Protection Department expertise was needed to extract the trio from the crashed vehicle, and all three were rushed to Mater Dei Hospital. 

While the 24-year-old driver only suffered minor injuries, her two passengers were more badly hurt, with the woman certified as being grievously injured and the Icelandic man seriously hurt. 

Magistrate Donatella Frendo Dimech is leading an inquiry into the case.
