Three people have been taken to hospital after a car struck a garden wall in North Lanarkshire.

A Vauxhall Astra was being driven southbound on Coltness Road towards Wishaw but as it approached its junction with North Dryburgh Road, the vehicle lost control and crashed.

A 19-year-old passenger was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, where she is being treated for a head injury. Hospital staff described her condition as serious.

The 19-year-old driver and a 16-year-old girl were both taken to University Hospital Wishaw, where the driver remains in a stable condition. The 16-year-old was later discharged.
