A NINE-year-old boy has suffered various injuries after being dragged under a car in Droitwich.

The incident occurred on Saturday, July 5 just before 9.20am when the boy was involved in a road traffic collision in Salwarpe Road.

An ambulance was called to the scene, along with a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic support officer, and the midlands Air ambulance from Strensham, which had a critical care paramedic on board.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “It is believed that the boy was dragged underneath the car in the collision and crews quickly began assessing him.

“He was suffering from abdominal pain and also had elbow and shoulder injuries as well as a number of cuts.

“He was immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and pelvic binder before being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital by land ambulance. The critical care paramedic from the Air Ambulance travelled with the boy to continue treatment en-route.

“Nobody else was injured in the incident.”
