A schoolgirl is in a serious condition in hospital after being knocked down on one of Leeds’s busiest roads.
The 11-year-old was on the A61 Scott Hall Road when she was hit by a Vauxhall Meriva near the junction with Buslingthorpe Lane at 7.42am on Wednesday.
She suffered a serious head injury and is being treated in hospital.
The outbound carriageway was closed for around two hours.
The driver, who stopped at the scene, has been spoken to by police.
