Three people have died in a crash after a BMW smashed into a roundabout near to a pub this morning.

The fatal collision took place in Knotty Ash, Liverpool, shortly after midnight.

Police say a woman in her 20s and two men, one in his 20s and the other in his 30s, died in the crash.

It took place on East Prescot Road near to the Greyhound Pub – which closed in 2014.

A Merseyside Police spokesman said: ‘We are appealing for information following a fatal road traffic collision in Knotty Ash in the early hours of this morning, Monday, April 26.

‘At around 12.15am, emergency services were called to East Prescot Road, close to the Greyhound pub, to reports of a collision involving a BMW colliding with the roundabout. 

‘Three people, a man in his 20s, a woman in her 20s, and a man in his 30s, were all taken to hospital by ambulance and all have sadly passed away. 

‘Their families have been informed and an investigation continues at the scene, including CCTV, witness and forensic inquiries.’

A road closure is currently in place on all approaches to the roundabout including Blackmoor Drive, Pilch Lane, and Brookside Avenue. 

A police spokesperson added: ‘Diversions are in place and we would ask motorists to take an alternative route.’

The crash comes just 25 hours after the same road was closed due to a separate accident at 11pm on Saturday.

An e-scooter rider was left fighting for his life after a crash involving a black Hackney cab at the junction of East Prescot Road and Blackmoor Drive.

The Greyhound Pub was closed in 2014 after police found  two kilos of cocaine, drug paraphernalia and £10,000 in cash in the living area above the premise.

Planning permission was given to turn the defunct pub into a bargain alcohol store in 2019. 

Those behind the development promised to invest £120,000 into the building, which is said to have become ‘run down’ after not being used for several years.
