A boy has been taken to hospital with head injuries after being hit by a car on his way to school.
Emergency services were called to the confrontational scenes on Sydenham Rd in Marrickville in Sydney’s inner west on Monday morning after the boy was hit by an oncoming vehicle in a school area.
Bystanders gave first aid to the boy until emergency services arrived.
He suffered deep lacerations to his forehead and was taken to Sydney Children’s Hospital in stable condition.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Mick Corlis described the scene as ‘quite confrontational’ as he gave a timely reminder to all motorists driving in school zones.
“This child had a deep cut on his head when bystanders gave first aid,” he said.
Paramedics then arrived and controlled the bleeding.
“This incident was one of three accidents this morning in school zones in the Sydney metropolitan area. Fortunately, none of the children were seriously injured.’
“It is a reminder to motorists to exercise extreme caution in school zones. There are a lot of people around, especially children who can unexpectedly step onto the road or suddenly appear behind buses or large vehicles.”
