Boy Badly Hurt After Wolverhampton Crash

A 12-year-old boy has been badly hurt after being hit by a car in Wolverhampton.

The child suffered what medics described as a ``very serious head injury'' in the collision in Warstones Road in Wolverhampton on Sunday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the scene at about 3.40pm.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: ``Crews found a 12-year-old who had suffered a very serious head injury. The windscreen of the car was damaged.''

The youngster was taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

West Midlands Police said the driver of the car was helping with their inquiries.

Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the force, said: ``The investigation is in its early stages and I would appeal for any witnesses who have not spoken to us to contact myself or my team.''
