A MAN was arrested after a car allegedly collided with a taxi in the early hours of Sunday morning and drove away from the scene.

A 24-year-old man was questioned by police, following the crash on Knowsley Road that ended with a Citroen taxi smashing into a garden wall.

The crash, which happened between 12.30am and 1am, left the 54-year-old taxi driver needing to be cut free by firefighters.

He was later taken to Whiston Hospital with an ankle injury.

Police later seized a red Ford Fiesta, after searching for a car that had failed to stop at the scene.

A police spokesman said: “A St Helens man was later arrested on suspicion of drink driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

“He was bailed until the end of May.”
