Ambulance bosses are appealing to all road users and pedestrians to be mindful of each other after a teenager escaped with relatively minor injuries after being in collision with a car in Birmingham.
The appeal comes after the incident close to Albert Bradbeer Primary School in Longbridge Lane, Longbridge at about 5.05pm on Monday afternoon.
An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene after no fewer than four 999 calls to the ambulance service about the incident.
A West Midlands Ambulance Servive spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found the teenager at the side of the road. Thankfully, he was the only patient and had suffered an ankle injury.
“Even though the evenings are getting lighter, it is still really important that all road users, whether pedestrians or motorised, look out for each other, especially at times when schoolchildren are about.
“Although it appears as though there have been no serious injuries on this occasion, we have previously seen much more tragic circumstances.”
