Children and parents injured after car mounts pavement outside primary school

A number of children have been injured after a car mounted the pavement by a school in south-west London, police have said.

Two parents were also hit by the vehicle outside the Beatrix Potter Primary School in Openview, Wandsworth.

None of the injuries are said to be life-threatening, although one child is believed to have fractured their leg, officers said. Several people were treated at the scene.

Paramedics and London’s Air Ambulance were called just after 3.10pm, while a fire engine was also pictured at the site.


No arrests have been made and inquiries are continuing. It is not yet clear what caused the car to mount the pavement.

Images from the scene also showed a vehicle with severe damage to its front bonnet and lights.

A spokesman for the Met Police said: ‘London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance have attended the scene. A tree was also struck during the incident.





‘The driver of the car stopped at the scene, neither they or the two children also in the car were injured.’

A number of roads in the area have been closed in connection with the incident.
