A nine-year-old girl who was badly injured after two cars collided in Linslade was this afternoon said to be in a “serious, but stable” condition.

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.

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

Beds Police has this afternoon confirmed the child’s condition has improved from “critical” and is now “serious, but stable”.

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

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit on 101.
