“They had been thrown through a wrought iron gate and into a fence.
“It was a very significant impact,” he said. “It is fortunate that this was not a fatality.
“I just want to say how fantastic both the police and paramedics were, in what was a very chaotic and challenging incident.”
A North East Ambulance Service spokeswoman said three people had been hurt in the incident and two ambulances had been used to take them to hospital, adding: “We were called at 12.28am on Saturday to a report of a road traffic collision involving three pedestrians outside the Black Bull pub in Old Shotton.
