Police are appealing for witnesses after a boy was seriously injured in a road traffic collision in Gateshead this evening (November 29).

At 6.16pm today (Thursday) police received a report of a collision involving a bus and a pedestrian on Prince Consort Road at the junction of Whitehall Road.

Emergency services attended where a 12-year-old boy was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle with serious injuries. His condition is described as critical but stable.

The driver of the bus was uninjured.

The road was closed for more than two hours to facilitate a thorough collision investigation and the recovery of the vehicle.

Police are now urging anyone who saw what happened in the moments leading up to the collision, particularly passing vehicles with dashcam footage, to get in touch.

Motor Patrols Sergeant Phil Emmerson said:

“Enquiries are being carried out to establish the circumstances around the collision.

“We understand that a light blue Citroen Picasso, a dark grey BMW three series and a silver Citroen Zara were in the area at the time and the occupants could be important witnesses – so we would urge them to get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information which could assist the investigation is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference 934 29/11/18 or email the officer in charge at: [email protected]
