A nine-year-old boy has been treated for a number of injuries by ambulance staff after being involved in a road traffic collision in Droitwich earlier this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the scene in Salwarpe Road shortly before 9.20am and sent an ambulance, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham, which had a critical care paramedic on board, to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “It is believed that the boy was dragged underneath the car in the collision and crews quickly began assessing him.
“He was suffering from abdominal pain and also had elbow and shoulder injuries as well as a number of cuts.
“He was immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and pelvic binder before being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital by land ambulance. The critical care paramedic from the Air Ambulance travelled with the boy to continue treatment en-route.
“Nobody else was injured in the incident.”
