Road traffic accident fractures eight-year-old's skull

An eight-year-old boy who was on his way to see friends was in collision with a car in a road traffic accident on a Saturday as he crossed the street.

The boy's father says that his son remembers that he had "looked left and right and didn't see a car," so he had crossed the road.

The father went on to say that his son "crosses there regularly because the kids have been trained properly."

There was a fatality on the same stretch of road in 2005 and since then speed cameras have been present as a deterrent to speeding motorists, but the local Lollipop lady who helps many school children across the road every day said that the car drivers "come racing up here and have to slam on the brakes to stop for me."

Both the injured boy's father and the Lollipop lady agree that more safety measures should be present on the road, as they feel that the speed cameras are not enough.

The young boy was treated by paramedics at the incident, and then taken to hospital suffering from a head injury. Police are investigating the circumstances and calling for any witnesses of the road traffic accident to come forwards.
