Teenager hit by car in Anfield
A teenager was taken to hospital after being hit by a car on Breck Road in Anfield .
Police said the 15-year-old boy was injured when he was hit by a silver Vauxhall Astra at the junction with Breckfield Road South at 5.05pm tonight, just outside The Royal pub.
The driver stopped at the scene, which was cordoned off for over two hours to allow it to be forensically examined.
Police said the teenager was taken to Alder Hey Hospital suffering from suspected leg injuries.
A woman working in a shop nearby said: “I heard a loud scream so I went and had a look outside and saw lots of mums with prams going towards the junction.
“Some customers came in later and said a child had been hit by a car.
“As long as they’re okay, that’s all that’s important.”
Two police cars remained on the scene and part of the road stayed closed until just after 7.30pm.
Staff in The Royal pub said they didn’t see what had happened, but said “a lot of police” had arrived on the scene soon afterwards. Liverpool Echo
