A teenage boy suffered potentially serious injuries after being hit by an ambulance on a 999 call.
The child was airlifted to hospital after the collision happened on Lichfield Street, in Walsall, yesterday evening.
West Midlands Ambulance Service said it was working with police to establish the circumstances of the crash.
The collision happened at around 5.35pm at the busy junction near an entrance to Walsall Arboretum.
The ambulance crew immediately provided clinical care to the teenager following the crash while back up teams were sent to the scene.

The ambulance crew were assessed but were unhurt, though badly shaken, said a spokeswoman.

A second ambulance was sent to the original emergency call.
A spokeswoman added: “West Midlands Ambulance Service will be working with collision investigators including providing CCTV from the ambulance, to establish exactly what happened.
