A young cyclist has been treated for multiple injuries following a collision with a car this evening.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Tessall Lane and Hollymoor Way in Longbridge, Birmingham, shortly after 5pm and sent two ambulances and a community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a boy, believed to be 12-years-old, who had been involved in a collision with a car whilst cycling.
“He was treated by medics for a suspected leg fracture and an ankle injury. The boy, who remained conscious throughout, was immobilised and given pain relief before being transported to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further assessment.
“Nobody else was injured in the incident.
“We would urge all cyclists and motorists to be extra vigilant and look out for each other when out and about on the roads, more so than ever during the current dark nights.”
