Teenager seriously injured after crash between car and private e-scooter in Coventry

A TEENAGER has been seriously injured after a private e-scooter collided with a car in Coventry yesterday (Friday).

The collision happened on the A444 Jimmy Hill Way, Coventry, near to the Sainsbury’s island around 5pm.

A 15-year-old suffered serious ankle injuries and remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

The driver stopped at the scene and assisted with inquiries.

Det Sgt Paul Hughes, from our serious collision investigation unit, said police were working to establish the full circumstances around what happened.

He appealed to the person who removed the scooter from the scene to get in touch, adding they were not helping anyone by taking the scooter.

And he urged anyone with information or dash cam footage to call 101 or email FL_COLLISION_INVEST@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk
