After being hit by a car in Liverpool city centre, a 2-year-old boy struggles for his life.
After being struck by a car in Liverpool city centre, a two-year-old kid is in critical condition.
Merseyside Police issued an appeal for witnesses today after reporting that the toddler was in a “critical but stable” state in hospital following the terrible scenes in Duke Street that prompted a large emergency response last night.
At around 7.30 p.m., several police cars and an ambulance arrived on the scene, and the roadway was closed off after the youngster was struck by a Volkswagen Golf.
At the scene, the motorist came to a complete stop.
The badly injured youngster has been identified as a two-year-old boy, and his distressed family is receiving professional support, according to authorities.
