A young child has died following an RTC in Birmingham last night.
The incident occurred on Nelson Road, Aston at around 6.50pm. Two ambulances and a paramedic officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a young child that had been in collision with a car.
“The boy had suffered serious injuries and was in traumatic cardiac arrest.
“Advanced life support was carried out by medics at the scene, and resuscitation attempts continued on route to hospital, who had been pre alerted and were awaiting the child’s arrival.
“Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of medics at the scene and hospital, nothing could be done to save the child and he was sadly confirmed dead a short time after arriving at hospital.”
