AN 11-YEAR-OLD schoolgirl was knocked down by a car as she used her mobile phone while crossing a busy road.
The All Saints Catholic College pupil was hit by a Ford Focus on Bradford Road, near Bradley Bar, on Tuesday at 8.20am.
The youngster had just got off a bus near Hazel Grove and was busy looking at her mobile phone as she crossed two lanes of rush-hour traffic.
She was struck by a car travelling in the outside lane towards Brighouse.
Luckily, the vehicle had already slowed down for the approaching roundabout.
The girl suffered abrasions in the incident and was treated at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for her injuries.
