Close Call: 12-Year-Old Knocked Down by Car, Narrowly Misses Second Impact

A Terrifying Moment

In a heart-stopping incident, a 12-year-old schoolboy was knocked to the ground by a car on Cambridge Street in Coventry.

What makes this incident even more terrifying is that, just seconds later, another car narrowly missed the boy by inches.

The Incident Unfolds

The harrowing incident occurred as the boy was crossing the road. A red car suddenly swerved around the corner, striking the child and knocking him to the ground.

The impact was forceful, but what followed was equally alarming.

A Second Narrow Escape

Almost unbelievably, a second car followed suit, careening into a parked black vehicle dangerously close to the boy.

Miraculously, the child narrowly escaped a second collision, with the second car missing him “by inches.”

Paramedics Called to the Scene

Paramedics swiftly responded to the scene to assess the young boy’s condition.

Fortunately, their evaluation revealed that he had escaped serious injury, much to the relief of his father.

A Fractured Ankle

Despite avoiding more severe harm, the boy’s ordeal left him with injuries. In the days following the accident, he began experiencing leg pain, prompting a visit to the GP.

The diagnosis was a fractured ankle, and he has been wearing a protective boot since the incident on August 30.

Emotional Impact

Beyond the physical injuries, the emotional toll on the young boy has been significant. His father shared that his son has been dealing with fear and trauma since the collision.

The incident has left him apprehensive about crossing roads, and he has not ventured out on his own since that fateful day.

Investigation Underway

The incident is currently under investigation by the police, although no arrests have been made thus far. West Midlands Police are urging any witnesses or individuals with information to come forward to aid their inquiries.

A Fortunate Outcome

Despite the frightening nature of the incident, the boy’s fortunate escape from more severe harm serves as a testament to the resilience of youth.

While physical recovery is underway, the emotional healing process will take time as he copes with the trauma of his close encounter with danger.
