A SIX-YEAR-OLD girl is fighting for her life after being hit by a Vauxhall Insignia in a cul-de-sac.
The little girl was airlifted to hospital after she was mowed down by the car in Royston, Cambridgeshire about 6.20pm on Saturday.
She remains in a critical condition today.
The driver of the Vauxhall, a man, remained at the scene and is helping officers with their enquiries, Cambridge News reported.
PC Christopher Thompson, who is leading the investigation, said the crash unfolded on Gower Way, at the junction with Leete Place.
He said: “This is a very upsetting incident and our thoughts are with the little girl and her family at this time.
“We are currently working to piece together the events leading up to the collision and have already spoken to a number of people.
“However, if you have not yet spoken to us but were there and witnessed what happened, saw the vehicle in the lead up to the collision or have any other information you think could prove useful, please get in touch.”
The young girl’s family remains by her side and are being supported by specialist officers.
