A TEENAGER was injured after being hit by a car outside Albert Bradbeer Primary School, Longbridge Lane, about 5.05pm on Monday evening (March 10).

Luckily, he only suffered an ankle injury after the collision but the incident has prompted West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) to urge all road users and pedestrians to watch out for each other.

A WMAS spokesperson said an ambulance, rapid response vehicle and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene after four 999 calls about the incident.

“On arrival, crews found the teenager at the side of the road.

“Even though the evenings are getting lighter, it is still really important that all road users, whether pedestrians or motorised, look out for each other, especially at times when schoolchildren are about.

“Although it appears as though there have been no serious injuries on this occasion, we have previously seen much more tragic circumstances.”
