A FIVE-year-old Oswaldtwistle schoolboy is said to be "doing well" after being in collision with a truck outside his school.
Little Mohammed Akbar, of Albert Street, was crossing Union Road opposite his school, St Paul’s Primary, when he was in collision with a yellow Ford Transit van on 11 February.
Mohammed was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital before later being transferred to Pendlebury Children’s Hospital in Manchester for treatment to a broken leg and bleeding on the brain.
Since the accident Mohammed’s family have expressed concerns about why there was no lollipop lady based at the school.
Sergeant Pete Sculpher, leading the investigation, said: "I am pleased to say that Mohammed is doing well on his long road to recovery.
"He is still having problems with movement on the right side of his body but he is now sat up in bed, eating and talking.
"A complete recovery will take a long time but he is heading in the right direction."
