A TEENAGER who was struck by two cars is still in hospital with serious injuries six weeks after the incident.

The 14-year-old pedestrian 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 struck by another car, a Peugeot 206, and was dragged along until the car came to a stop.

It happened on the evening of Wednesday, January 11, and the boy was taken to Lister Hospital before being transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

This week he remains in hospital and has been described as stable.

A police spokesman said: "It would be fair to say that this has been a life changing incident and he is still very poorly."

Investigations continue.
