The boy, a pedestrian, was struck on Norman Road near its junction with Potter Road at around 7.30am.

An ambulance and a critical care car from the Midlands Air Ambulance attended the scene, along with West Midlands Police.

The youngster sustained a "suspected serious injury" and was treated at the scene, West Midlands Ambulance Service said.

He was given trauma care before being taken in an ambulance on blue lights to Birmingham Children's Hospital for further care.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "A teenager has been taken to hospital, with injuries which are not believed to be life threatening or life changing, after being hit by a car."

The driver stopped at the scene and is assisting enquiries, the force added.

Norman Road connects Thimblemill Road and Wolverhampton Road and is near several schools.
