They were initially taken to hospital by ambulance, but unfortunately did not survive.

Emergency services were called at around 12.15am today to East Prescot Road, Knotty Ash, Liverpool, to reports of a collision involving a BMW colliding with the roundabout.

A Merseyside Police spokesperson said: ‘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.’

The road and roundabout remain closed while an investigation takes place.
