Tuesday 25th July 2017 – 2.50pm – Murray MacGregor.

A young cyclist has been injured after a collision with a car.

It happened near to the junction of Langbank Avenue and Willenhall Lane in Coventry at just after 1.00pm this afternoon.

Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found an off-duty nurse and the crew of a WMAS non-emergency patient transport service vehicle at the scene providing aid to the girl.

“The initial calls suggested that the girl had been knocked out briefly but she was fully conscious when ambulance crews assessed her.

“The 10-year-old had suffered abrasions on her head, arms and legs but appeared not to have suffered any serious injuries.  Her bike had not been so lucky with the saddle no longer attached to the bike.

“As a precaution, the girl was taken on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

“There was no car at the scene of the incident.”
