A pupil has been taken to hospital after colliding with a car outside a Letchworth School this morning.
Ambulance crews and police were called to Highfield near The Highfield School shortly before 8.30am, after the boy was in collision with a car.
He was treated at the scene and taken to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital with injuries that are not thought to be life threatening.
Police were also at the scene.
Bethany Dempsey who has three children at the nearby St Thomas More Catholic Primary School, said parents are planning to petition Herts County Council for a crossing the road.
She says there have been two incidents of children being hit by cars in the past three months.
“It’s dangerously busy down there. The council have been approached and have said it’s not busy enough.

“People also park really badly and children are sometimes in their own world and don’t see what’s coming.
“It seems a really serious accident could happen at any point. It just needs a zebra crossing,” she said.
