A mother, who was travelling with her teenaged son in a Renault Kuga, was taken to hospital with chest pains following the crash at the junction of Pottery Road and Swan Meadow Road which also involved a Volkswagen Polo.
It was the Renault which ended up on its roof but both occupants – and the male driver and passenger of the VW who were in their 20s – were all able to scramble free of the wrecked vehicles unaided.
Paramedics treated all four casualties at the scene for "bumps and bruises” but only the woman – who was in her 30s – needed to be taken to hospital due to the chest and other pains she was suffering.
A crew from Wigan fire station was called to the scene following the crash at around 8pm on Wednesday October 5.
