A young lad has received advanced trauma care at the scene of a collision with a car after suffering a nasty leg fracture.
The crash happened in Stratford Road in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham at around 4.30pm.
The eight year old was crossing the road with his mother when the collision happened.
An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midland Air Ambulance from Cosford were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The youngster had suffered a very badly broken left leg and some minor abrasions to his face.
“He was given advanced pain relief by the doctor from the air ambulance before his leg was treated.
“He was then taken on blue lights in a serious condition to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with the doctor travelling with the land crew.
“The boy’s mother and the car driver were both unhurt.”
