Three hospitalised in Stevenage road accidents

Three people were hospitalised in three separate road accidents within 45 minutes in Stevenage this morning (Tuesday).

The emergency services received the first call at 8.16am after a 15-year-old boy was hit by a car on York Road. He was taken to Lister Hospital with minor injuries.

At 8.26am they were scrambled again to the cycle path alongside Martins Way where a 17-year-old male moped rider had collided with a fence. He was also taken to Lister with minor injuries.

The third accident was called in to 999 at 8.52am reporting a collision between a male pedestrian in his 30s and a car on Six Hills Way. He was taken to Lister with a suspected broken arm.

East of England Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “This was quite a busy period for the local paramedics and thankfully all three patients did not sustain serious injuries.”
