Teenager critical in hospital after accident in Sunderland
12:51pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
TWO men have been arrested after an accident which left a teenage girl critically ill in hospital.
The 17-year-old pedestrian was knocked down by a blue Volvo S60 in Ormonde Street, in Sunderland shortly after 5.30pm on Tuesday (Sept 17).
She was airlifted to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle with what police described as "serious and potentially life-threatening injuries".
Two men, aged 39 and 38, have been arrested on suspicion of causing injury by dangerous driving and are in custody helping officers with their enquiries.
Police say they are particularly keen to speak to any motorists or pedestrians who were in the Ormonde Street or the roads from the Barnes roundabout area in the time before the collision and who may have seen a blue Volvo S60 or a turquoise Vauxhall Corsa driving in the area.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Northumbria Police on 101 ext 69191.
