A pedestrian is fighting for his life and a 10-year-old boy has been seriously injured following two separate collisions in Doncaster.

The 30-year-old pedestrian from Skellow sustained life-threatening head injuries after stepping into the road and being hit by a grey Honda Civic travelling on the A630 Trafford Way.

The driver of the vehicle, a 31-year-old local man, was not arrested.

The pedestrian is being treated at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.

Meanwhile a 10-year-old boy suffered serious leg injuries in an incident at around noon on Sunday in Liverpool Avenue, Wheatley.

He was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

A police spokesman said the blue Mazda car was travelling from the direction of Beckett Road along Liverpool Avenue.

It is believed the 10-year-old boy, who was riding a bicycle, came out of an alleyway and into the road, colliding with the blue car.

The driver of the car, a 49-year-old local woman, was not injured.

A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “We didn’t see anything but a neighbour told us what had happened. It’s tragic.

“Kids are always zooming out from the alleyway into the road. I’m surprised no-one has been killed before now. Something should be done about it to make it more safe.” Officers are appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to call 101 quoting incident number 525 of July 7.
