A nine-year-old girl who was crushed after two cars collided in Linslade remains in a critical condition, the LBO can confirm.

Police and ambulance crews were called to Old Road at 3.40pm on Tuesday afternoon, after reports that a young girl had been knocked over after a silver Ford KA and a blue Mercedes collided with each other.

The street was closed from the junction with Rosebury Avenue to allow room for an air ambulance, piloted by HRH Prince William, to land.

The nine-year-old girl was treated for life-threatening injuries, including a broken pelvis and broken legs, and was airlifted to Addenbrookes Hospital.

She remains in a critical condition, Beds Police confirmed to the LBO this afternoon.

A second girl was also involved in the collision but sustained only minor injuries.
