A TEENAGER is in hospital with serious injuries after he was hit by two cars.

The 14-year-old boy was crossing Six Hills Way in Stevenage, near to the junction with Shephall Way when he was in collision with a Nissan 200 SX.

While in the road he was hit by another car, a Peugeot 206, and dragged along until the car came to a stop.

The incident happened last Wednesday evening at 7.10pm.

Gary Sanderson, Beds and Herts Ambulance and Paramedic Service duty officer who attended the scene, said: "On arrival the male was trapped underneath the car on the roadway. The paramedics and technicians at the scene went under the car to treat and stabilise him while the fire service used specialist equipment to raise the car off him."

Both vehicles involved in the collision stopped at the scene of the accident.

The area was very busy at the time of the collision and police would like to speak to any witnesses.

They have appealed to the driver of a white van and an unknown vehicle both of which did not stop but could have vital information.

The boy was taken to Lister Hospital but transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital on the night of the crash. He is said to be in a serious but stable condition.

The cars involved in the incident were recovered for mechanical examination which is normal procedure in serious road traffic collisions.
