West Midlands Ambulance Service crews received four 999 calls to an accident in Shenley Lane at just after 4pm today, where a girl had been in collision with a car.
Initial reports on the accident, near the junction of Long Nuke Road, suggested the girl may have been seriously injured.
However, WMAS have confirmed that the 11 year old had a lucky escape, receiving only minor bumps and bruises but no obvious serious injuries.
A spokesman said: “She was taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital as a precaution for further assessment, but it is thought likely she will be released later this evening.
“The man driving the car was uninjured but understandably upset by what had happened.”
