The BBC is reporting that eight girls aged between 11 and 16 were injured yesterday in a collision with a car near a Liverpool school, police have said.
Two girls were “seriously” injured in the 15:20 GMT crash in Belvidere Road, according to the emergency services.
The driver of the Peugeot car, a woman in her 80s, was also injured and treated at the scene.
Seven of the girls, aged between 11 and 13, were taken to Alder Hey children’s hospital by ambulance.
A 16-year-old with minor injuries was taken to The Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
Merseyside Police said the driver, who stopped at the scene, was not injured and had not been arrested. She is assisting police with inquiries.
Merseyside Police said none of the girls was thought to be in a life-threatening condition…
Apparently the incident happened while the girls were waiting to catch the school bus – let’s hope they all recover swiftly.
