Girl, 10, critical after collision with car
She suffered serious head injuries as a result of being struck by a silver/beige Skoda Roomster near the BP petrol station on London Road at about 4.10pm.
The girl was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading before being transferred to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where she remains critically ill.
The incident happened during rush hour on Friday and Thames Valley Police has appealed for witnesses to come forward.
The investigating officer, PC Anthony Fisher, based at the Joint Roads Policing Unit in Chieveley, said: “The traffic was fairly heavy in the London Road area at the time of the collision so I believe there may be people who saw what happened who have not yet come forward.
"If anyone has information which could assist our inquiry I would urge them to come forward as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the 24-hour police enquiry centre on 101, or anonymously on on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and the caller will not go to court.
