Hertfordshire Police are appealing for information, witnesses and dash cam footage following a serious collision in Watford yesterday morning (Friday, August 21) which left a boy seriously injured.

Police were called at 9.53am to reports of a collision involving a red Peugeot 307 and a pedestrian in First Avenue, Watford.

Officers attended, alongside the ambulance service, and the pedestrian – a four-year-old boy – was taken to hospital with a serious injury to his abdomen.

Sergeant Simon Cooper, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “We are still establishing the circumstances of this collision which has left a small child very badly injured.

“Were you in the area? Did you see what happened? Any information you have, no matter how small it might seem, could be vital to our investigation.

“I would also like to urge anyone who was in the area and has a dash cam fitted to their vehicle to please check it. You may have captured something useful so please do have a look and let me know if you think it could be of use to our investigation.

“If you can help, please call the non-emergency number 101 or email me at  quoting ISR 239 of 21 August.”
