A teenage boy is currently in hospital in a serious condition, with potentially life-changing injuries, following a collision in the Brierley area.

At around 1.45pm yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 20 March), the boy was travelling along Common Road, on a white Moto Race scooter, when he is said to have swerved to avoid another vehicle, described as a red 4x4, travelling in the opposite direction.

The scooter then hit the kerb before colliding with a parked car, causing minor damage to it. The collision happened close to the junction of Norwood Drive.

The boy, 17, was taken to hospital, where he currently remains in a serious but stable condition.

Officers want to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or who saw the other vehicle, or a similar shaped vehicle.
