A two-month old baby was seriously injured in a car rollover in the Mid West yesterday evening.

Police say a silver Toyota Echo was travelling along Agaton Road in Dandaragan about 5.50pm on Wednesday when the driver lost control and the vehicle rolled several times.

There were three people inside the car — a man in his 20s, a woman in her 30s and an infant, about eight weeks old. The occupants were taken to Moora Hospital by a passing motorist who stopped to help.

The baby suffered serious injuries and was airlifted by helicopter to Perth Children’s Hospital, accompanied by the man in his 20s.

The woman was also injured in the crash, although how badly remains unclear at this stage.

A spokeswoman for Perth Children’s Hospital this morning said the baby was in a serious but stable condition.
