Two teenage girls have been taken to hospital after they were struck by a car in the Upper Gornal area of Dudley.

The collision happened in Valley Road at just after 10.00pm on Monday evening. Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene after no fewer than six 999 calls about the incident.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a red Vauxhall Corsa with a badly damaged front wheel.

“The teenage girls were sitting on the pavement with a large number of local people at the scene.

“A 14 year old girl was taken to Russells Hall Hospital with suspected fracture to her ankle.

“A 13 year old was taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with a potentially serious hip injury. Ambulance staff immobilised the girl and also put a pelvic binder in place.

“The driver of the car, a man in his late teens or early 20s, was unhurt.”
