A woman has spoken about road safety after performing first aid to a girl who was ran over this afternoon.

This comes after an 11-year-old girl was knocked down by a car on her way home from school.

The incident happened this afternoon on Martongate outside Headlands School, Bridlington with the girl said to have suffered a blow to the head.

The first aider said: “I was driving past to pick my children up from school when I saw the girl lying on the floor. I pulled over and wanted to help like any mother. I did what any other human would have done and performed basic first aid until the ambulance arrived.”

Now the first aider is keen to send out the message to fellow parents with their children around roads.

The first aider added: “Parents need to speak to their children and children need to take care near a road, regardless of age. If you come up against a car then the car will win.

“Seeing her in the road brought it home to me that it could have been my child.I just did my bit and I hope the girl recovers quickly.”

The girl has been airlifted to James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough for treatment.
