Teenager seriously injured in ring road collision
Police are appealing for information following a serious collision, which closed part of Wolverhampton’s ring road last night (28 July).
The crash, on Ring Road St Peters, left a 15 year-old girl with serious injuries.
The teenager was crossing the Ring Road at the Waterloo Road junction, at around 4.30pm, when she was struck by a Volkswagen Golf.
The girl was taken to hospital where she is being treated for life threatening injuries. The driver, who stopped at the scene, was interviewed and is assisting the police investigation.
Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed the incident.
“Wolverhampton Ring Road would have been busy at the time and we are sure people may well have witnessed what happened but are yet to contact police.
“We are currently following up a number of enquiries and it is important that we piece together the events leading up to the collision. I would appeal directly to anyone with any information, no matter how small it may seem, to contact myself or any member of my team.”
The ring road was closed from Chapel Ash to Stafford Street for around five hours whilst emergency services worked at the scene and recovered the vehicle involved.
Anyone with information should contact the Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
