SAFETY MEASURES CALL AFTER BOY HURT IN ROAD ACCIDENT.
AN ambulance crew treated a young boy who was hurt in a road accident in Meliden.
The incident happened on the A547 Ffordd Talargoch in Meliden just before 4pm yesterday.
The boy's injuries are unknown but Cllr Gerry Frobisher, the Mayor of Prestatyn and Meliden, arrived on the scene just after the incident happened, he thought the child had hurt his leg.
He said: "I could see the cars bunching up and some of them turning back on the main road. When I went up to the shop I could see an ambulance in front of a car that had been coming from the direction of Rhuddlan, next to the car there were paramedics treating a boy of eight or nine. They seemed to be treating him for a leg injury and from what people were saying it sounded like he had broken his leg."
Cllr Frobisher added he had concerns about safety on that particular stretch of road and said precautions needed to be taken to stop similar incidents happening again.
He said: "I have lived here for about 30 years and there are about three or four of these types of accidents a year there.
"There should be pedestrian crossing signs at both ends of the narrow length of road, this would make drivers more aware of the possibility of pedestrians crossing the road."
