A young boy was today in a serious but stable condition after being hit by a van in Kidderminster.
And a cyclist and another woman, in her 70s, were also injured in separate accidents across the region.
The eight-year-old boy had to be airlifted to Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital following the accident yesterday.
He suffered a fractured pelvis and a broken leg.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the accident in Queen Elizabeth Road which involved a Ford Transit van.
Officers say the eight-year-old boy was riding a scooter along Biset Avenue and collided with the van at the junction with Queen Elizabeth Road at 2.10pm.
Onlookers claimed the van also careered into wheelie bins and part of a wooden fence outside one of the houses in the road.
The air ambulance landed on fields at nearby King Charles School, in Kidderminster. The road was closed off for up to five hours while investigations continued.
West Mercia Police today said the van driver was not injured and had been spoken to by officers.
Witnesses are asked to call 101 and ask for Sergeant Steve Hastie at West Mercia Police.
Meanwhile major route in Wolverhampton was blocked and delays caused to the Midland Metro after a cyclist was involved in a crash with a car today. Police and paramedics were called to Bilston Road, in Wolverhampton, at around 5.30am today.
The cyclist, a 57-year-old man, received treatment at the scene but police said he had escaped with minor injuries.
In a separate crash, a woman in her 70s, received chest and wrist injuries after her car ploughed into the back of a parked lorry. The accident happened in Cakemore Road, Rowley Regis, by the Goals soccer centre last night.
Fire crews from Oldbury and Stourbridge were forced to cut the roof off the Clio to free the woman following the smash shortly before 8pm. The front end of the car was destroyed by the impact of the crash.
Crew commander Ian Nash, of Oldbury Fire Station, said: “We are not sure what happened but somehow the elderly woman did not see the lorry parked up.”
