A teenage girl narrowly avoided serious injury today when she stepped into the path of an oncoming car during a snowball fight.

The 13-year-old was waiting at bus stop in Doddington with school friends when she moved into the road to avoid a snowball and was hit a passing motorist.

Luckily, she was uninjured but has been taken to Hinchingbrooke hospital for a precautionary X-ray.

A family friend went to the scene to help out and said the car driver was not to blame.

“It was definitely not his fault,” he said. “She simply stepped into the road and he accidentally hit her”.
