Two children and two adults had a lucky escape after a horror crash involving three cars in Oldbury this morning.

A police spokeswoman said the crash involving three cars happened just before 8am on Mundijong Road near Duckpond Road.

She said three people were immediately taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and a fourth had to be cut free from out of one of the cars.

A primary school aged boy was taken to Princess Margaret hospital with abrasions and bruising and another primary school aged boy was taken to Fiona Stanley hospital for assessment.

A woman in her 30s was taken to Fiona Stanley hospital and a woman in her 50s was taken to Royal Perth hospital.

Former police officer and Serpentine Jarrahdale councillor Barry Urban was third on the scene.

“I sorted out people to do point duty and had someone make the phone calls,” he said.

“When I got there it was a fresh scene so I just started organising people.”

An off duty police officer and a paramedic, who had just finished his shift at Jarrahdale, also helped until emergency services arrived.

“There were two school boys in the back of the white Swift,” Mr Urban said.

“One boy had a sore back and chest.”

The female driver of the red car was trapped for about an hour and removed from the passenger side of the vehicle by Armadale heavy rescue.

Police were investigating whether the driver of the white Swift pulled out in front of the red car, which had been travelling on Mundijong Road where the speed limit is 100km/h.
