A pedestrian has suffered a number of serious injuries in a road traffic collision with a car in Cradley Heath tonight (Saturday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to The Parade, shortly after 8.20pm and sent an ambulance and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered an 11-year-old boy who had been in collision with a car.

“It quickly became apparent that the boy was seriously hurt and crews began treating him for pelvic, abdominal and leg injuries. He had also suffered minor injuries to his face.

“He was given pain relief, had both legs put into a splint and was immobilised before being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital on alert.

“Although the boy’s injuries were considered serious, they are not thought to be life threatening.

“Nobody else was injured in the incident.”
