Lincoln boy, 11, injured in ‘learner driver hit and run’

An 11-year-old boy ‘thought he was going to die’ after he was knocked off his bike by a “woman on a driving lesson” and left on the side of the road.

Jordan Lamb was crossing the road on his bike on Larchwood Crescent, Birchwood at around midday on Saturday, April 27 when he was hit by a car.

Witnesses on the scene said he was hit by a white learner car, which was being driven by ‘a young girl’ at the time.

A male driving instructor then reportedly got out of the vehicle before moving Jordan to the side of the road. He then swapped places with the learner and drove away.

Jordan suffered a minor head injury, as well as a hairline fracture above his knee and bruising in the crash. He required six hours of treatment at Lincoln County Hospital.

He received a hairline fracture above his knee.

Zoe Lamb, the boy’s mother, told The Lincolnite: “My son was left injured at the side of the road on his own. We are thankful for the kind neighbours who came to help him.

“He has been telling his sister that he thought he was going to die. Jordan is trying to put on a brave face but we know it has had a bad effect on him. He’s even been too scared to go to school.”

Lincolnshire Police are investigating and have issued an appeal for witnesses to the reported hit and run.

A spokesperson for the force said: “Incident 194 of April 27 refers to a collision between a vehicle and a cyclist, a boy, aged 11.

“The boy received minor injuries. We received reports that a white car was involved in the collision. If anyone witnesses this incident they should call us on 101, incident 194 of April 27.”
