Moped accident outside school highlights risk

A moped accident outside a primary school, which also involved pedestrian injury to a three-year-old girl in Fletton, Peterborough, has highlighted road traffic accident risks outside school entrances where parents often cause congestion when parking to collect their children.

Accompanied by her parents, the child was taken to Peterborough City Hospital with a suspected head injury but as she was conscious and breathing, her condition was not believed to be life-threatening.

The male rider of the blue Reiju moped, which was damaged in the collision, was also taken to hospital for a check-up.

Nearby residents in Fletton High Street told local newspaper reporters they were not surprised there had been a personal injury accident at the site.

"It has been an accident waiting to happen for a long time. People just park on the side of the road, especially at the beginning and end of school, and people can't see what is coming.

"There is a lollipop lady who works there but it is still very dangerous."

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph has started a ‘school run campaign' to encourage pupils to walk or use public transport to get to school in order to reduce the traffic around schools.

Police are appealing for witnesses of the collision and if anyone is found liable for the injuries to those involved in the moped accident, one or both of the victims may wish to consult a solicitor about making a compensation claim.
