A teenage lad was in collision with a car close to Albert Bradbeer School in Longbridge Lane this afternoon.
Luckily, the pedestrian suffered minor injuries on this occasion but West Midlands Ambulance Service are taking the opportunity to remind all road users and pedestrians to take care and look out for each other on the roads.
After receiving four 999 calls from the public, ambulance crews attended the incident close to Albert Bradbeer Primary School just after 5pm.
An ambulance service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found the teenager at the side of the road. Thankfully, he was the only patient and had suffered an ankle injury.
“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.”
