Its awful, school runs around the area are all an accident waiting to happen, my two sons attend red lane and traffic/ parking around school is just horrendous.. Lollipop ladies now should be a high paid job with danger money bonuses, and needs to be more of them... Im thankful for the parents and driver,that the child is ok,, because it might not be so minor next time,, question is when? not if?

Looks like he was sent home without needing further treatment, so luckily must have looked a lot worse than it was.

im so glad he is ok.it looked quite bad at first as it was the car in front of me that hit him.
I hope he is not too shaken up.
The lollipop ladies do a fantastic job around there but I think he ran out while the traffic was moving im just glad it was a low speed collision and not a bus or truck as it may of ended up a lot worse
