THREE people were hospitalised after three crashes on local roads within five hours in bad weather conditions on Monday.

Emergency services were first called to a crash in Kingsley where a vehicle carrying an 88-year-old man and 81-year-old woman hit a tree on Goollelal Drive about 12.30pm.

Police said both occupants were taken to Royal Perth Hospital with injuries not believed to be serious.

About 4.30pm, a car carrying a 51-year-old mother and her 14-year-old son struck a tree and landed on its side on Flinders Avenue in Hillarys.

Police said fire and ambulance crews were advised, but the pair was lucky to escape injury.

Officers then attended a two-car collision on Joondalup Drive near Aston Street in Joondalup about 5.30pm.

A man in his 50s suffered minor injuries and was taken to Joondalup Health Campus.

Both vehicles were severely damaged in the crash.

Yesterday, emergency services were needed at a multiple car crash at the intersection of Joondalup Drive and Collier Pass.

Police, fire crews and paramedics had blocked off a portion of Joondalup Drive just after 10am as they attended to those involved.
