A SCHOOL girl requires surgery as she suffered a fractured ankle after being hit by a car while crossing the road.

The 14-year-old had just got off a school bus and was crossing Bangors Road North in Iver Heath on Friday at around 4.30pm when she was hit by a BMW saloon car.

The driver of the silver or grey coloured car, described as a white woman in her seventies, stopped and spoke to the girl before continuing on her journey towards Iver.

The girl was taken by ambulance to Wexham Park Hospital and needs surgery on her right ankle. She also suffered cuts and bruises to her legs.

Investigating officer PC Jerry Davies, of the Roads Policing Unit based at Amersham, said: “We are keen to speak to the driver or anyone who witnessed the incident.

“The girl had been crossing the road with a group of other school pupils who had got off the 912 Imperial Service from the Chalfont Community College. The girl was dressed in school uniform at the time."
