A schoolgirl was transported to the hospital after being hit by a car on a major downtown route.
Yesterday evening, a schoolgirl was struck by a car on Wavertree’s bustling Queens Drive dual carriageway.
Witnesses said the girl, who was wearing a school uniform, was struck by a grey Mercedes automobile between the Woolton Road and Dudlow Lane intersections.
At around 5 p.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to the site, and the girl was treated on the spot before being brought to the hospital.
Her injuries were classified as “not life-threatening.”
“At around 5pm yesterday (Tuesday 14 September), we got a complaint of a collision on Queen’s Drive involving a car and a pedestrian,” a Merseyside Police spokeswoman said.
“Emergency services responded to the collision at the Woolton Road and Dudlow Lane intersection.
“A female pedestrian was brought to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
“The driver of the automobile, a grey Mercedes, pulled over to the side of the road and assisted police with their investigation.
