Police are appealing for witnesses as a young man remains in a critical condition in hospital after being hit by a car as he tried to cross a busy road on Thursday 21 January.
The 16-year-old was hit by a silver Toyota Aygo just after 5.30pm at the traffic lights controlled junction of Bilston Road and Farmer Way, Gospel Oak, near to the Gospel Oak Public House.
He sustained serious head injuries and continues to receive hospital treatment.
Officers have spoken to the driver of the Aygo, who stopped at the scene, and the road was closed for several hours whilst specialist accident reconstruction officers tried to piece together what happened.
Sergeant Alan Wood, from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit, said:
This is a busy road, particularly at this time of the day. A number of witnesses have already come forward but I would appeal to anyone else who may have seen the incident to contact us to help us establish exactly what happened.

Police have released CCTV of a man they want to speak to after a noxious liquid was squirted at a Tipton shop worker.
The attack happened at Lifestyle Express in Tividale Road when a man threw the liquid at the employee and then lunged at him and cut him with a knife.
The man then ran off from the shop empty-handed.
Detectives are currently trawling through CCTV and speaking to witnesses.
At this stage a 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the investigation and released on bail and officers are continuing to appeal for help to find a second man.
He is described as black, around 23 years old, 6ft tall, medium build and clean shaven. He was wearing a black cap, black coat and black trousers.
The shop worker suffered two cuts to his cheek following the attack which happened at around 3.20pm on 7 July.
We’ve released this image in the hope that someone recognises the man and can help us move our investigation forward.
"This was a really nasty attack and the shop worker was lucky to suffer only relatively minor injuries.
"If you know the man in the image or have any information about what happened, please call us as soon as possible."
Anyone with information should contact PC Finnegan on 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
