The boy, who is four years old, was involved in the collision in Bradford on Sunday afternoon. He was then taken to hospital with head injuries, which were described by the police as “serious” and “life-threatening”.

The police have said he ran into the road, where he was struck by a Vauxhall Corsa.

An air ambulance was called to the scene shortly afterwards.

Police are now appealing for witnesses of the incident to come forward.

A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Police said: “Officers are appealing for witnesses after a child was seriously injured following a road traffic collision in Bradford.

“Emergency services were called to Thornhill Place, Bradford, at around 2.20pm yesterday afternoon (November 7), when it is reported that a four-year-old boy ran across the road and was struck by a vehicle, a Vauxhall Corsa.

“The young boy was taken to hospital with serious head injuries, and his condition described as life-threatening.

“Police are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed or who has dashcam footage regarding this incident to contact 101, quoting reference number 13210573654.”

Just three weeks ago, a ten-year-old was killed in a car accident in Bradford.

Tayab Akram was hit by a van on October 13 and died of his injuries the following week.

The boy, from East Bowling, was rushed to Leeds General Infirmary after the collision.

Tayab was placed on life support in an induced coma but his injuries were too serious for him to recover.

Bradford councillor Hassan Khan said described it as a “terrible loss”.
