Monday 30th September 2013 – 5.56pm – Murray MacGregor.
A young girl has had a lucky escape after being in collision with a car in Birmingham this afternoon (Monday).
The collision happened on Shenley Lane near the junction of Gregory Avenue and Long Nuke Road at about 4.20pm.
An ambulance and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene after no fewer than four 999 calls about the incident.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Initial descriptions from the callers suggested that the girl could have been seriously injured.
“Thankfully, that turned out not to be the case. The 11 year old had suffered multiple bumps and bruises but no obvious injuries of a serious nature.
“She was taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital as a precaution for further assessment, but it is thought likely she will be released later this evening.
“The man driving the car was uninjured but understandably upset by what had happened.”
