The emergency services were called to Plymouth Road at around 12.25pm on Wednesday to reports of a collision between a Honda and a Volvo.

The child's mother, who was driving the Volvo, was taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth with a broken arm, police said.

Two men, both from South Devon who were in the Honda, went to hospital with minor injuries and remain with police to help with enquiries.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said the road between Fork Cross and Folaton Gate was closed and is expected to remain so for the "foreseeable future" while officers from the serious collisions unit carry out their investigations.

Anyone with information, or anyone who may have dashcam footage, relating to the incident is being asked to call 101 quoting log number 290 for 20 December.
