A MUM whose son was injured in an horrific car accident in Halesowen is appealing for a good Samaritan who helped him to get in touch.

Ten-year-old Kenley Harris was the front seat passenger in the car when it hit a lamppost and overturned on the junction of Manor Way and Grange Hill.

A mystery man helped Kenley out of the car and wrapped him in a blanket before he was taken into a nearby house and the emergency services arrived.

The shocking accident happened when Kenley was in the car with his dad on Saturday (September 7) at around 9.58pm - there were no other vehicles involved.

Kenley's mum Anna Harris said she had thanked the couple who took him into their home and had given them a card, but she has no idea of the identity of the man.

Anna, aged 37, said: "I would really like to thank the stranger who helped Kenley.

"He helped him out of the car and gave him a blanket.

"It was a very bad crash and Kenley is lucky to be alive - the lamppost was completely taken out and the car flipped two or three times.

"Kenley FaceTimed me straight after the accident. It was so awful to see him in shock and hurt. I never want to go through anything like it again - it was the worst feeling ever.

"My dad took me straight to the couple's house - they had a 12-week-old baby and other children I think.

"I got to the scene before he got into the ambulance.

"I'm so grateful to the people who helped him. I feel awful that I wasn't there when he needed me.

"I have taken a thank you card to the couple, but I have no idea who the man is and I just want to thank him so much for helping my son and to return his blanket."

Kenley, who lives in Kingstanding, Birmingham and attends Kings Rise Academy suffered whiplash, bruising on his side and stomach and a graze around his neck where his seatbelt was.

He was taken by ambulance to Russells Hall Hospital and is now back at school.

Mum-of-two Anna said: "He keeps having dreams now that the same thing happens again - it's very traumatic and he's only ten."

West Midlands Ambulance said of the incident: ""We sent two ambulances and a paramedic officer to the scene.

"There were two patients - a man who had managed to get himself out of the car, who suffered injuries not believed to be serious and was taken to Russells Hall Hospital.

"A boy, who was the front seat passenger, also suffered injuries not thought to be serious and was also taken to Russells Hall Hospital."
