Two toddlers have been injured, one seriously, after their pushchair was in collision with a car in Birmingham earlier this evening.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received several 999 calls to the junction of the A45 Coventry Road and Henry Road in Yardley, near to the Swan Island, just after 7.00pm (Tuesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a girl and a boy who had been in collision with a car whilst in their pushchair.
“It is believed the children were on a crossing on the A45 at the time of the collision.
“The girl, believed to be four years old, was more seriously injured and had sustained head and facial injuries. The boy, believed to be five years old, suffered lacerations to his face and head. Both were fully immobilised by ambulance crews and the doctor and their conditions stabilised before they were taken by ambulance on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
“Medics were pre alerted to the arrival of the children.
“The driver of the car was uninjured.”
