The Yorkshire Air Ambulance was called after a child was in collision with a car in York.
The incident happened shortly before 6pm yesterday (Wednesday), on Hawthorn Terrace, New Earswick.
A spokeswoman for Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust said: “We received a call at 5.49pm on Wednesday to reports of a young child who ran into the side of a moving vehicle on Hawthorn Terrace in New Earswick.
“We dispatched an ambulance, rapid response vehicle and the air ambulance to the scene and the child was conveyed by land ambulance to York Hospital.”
Happily, the boy was not badly hurt. A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson told us: “The child had some cuts and grazes and was taken to hospital for a check over as a precaution.”
Witnesses said the boy was aged about four. He was seen sitting up in the ambulance soon after the collision.
