Appeal after girl, 11, hit by car in Wolverhampton

An 11-year-old girl was seriously injured when she was hit by a car as she walked down a street.

The car struck a wall before hitting the girl and a woman and coming to rest in a garden, police said.

Paramedics were called to the junction of Warstones Drive and Hamble Road in Wolverhampton at 18:45 BST on Friday.

The girl is in a serious but stable condition. The woman and driver were not seriously injured.

Insp Mark Watkins, from West Midlands Police, urged any witnesses to contact the force.

"The young girl has suffered serious injuries and we have launched a full investigation into how the car came to leave the road and collide with her and the other pedestrian."

The road was closed for several hours while the vehicle, a Nissan Almera, was recovered.
