Monday 15th February 2016 – 5.20pm – Murray MacGregor.

A youngster has escaped potentially very serious injuries after an incident with a car.

It happened near To Abraham Darby School on Ironbridge Road in the Woodside area of Telford at lunchtime.

An ambulance was sent to the scene after three 999 calls at 1.30pm today (Monday).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When the crew arrived, they found an off duty nurse with the seven year old. He had suffered quite a nasty injury to his foot after the car went over it, but otherwise he appeared uninjured.

“He was given pain relief before having the injury treated at the scene by the crew. He was then taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for further assessment.

“The car driver was shaken but uninjured.”
