Of course I hope she is ok. But this happened just yards from Epsom General Hospital. This hospital, which at one time had it's A&E vastly enlarged & improved, mainly to serve the M25. Now although still big enough to deal with such accidents, is being stripped of facilities & personnel who could have dealt with this accident so well. The people of Epsom need the A&E facilities, not just the sign outside.

It is remarkable how rarely this sort of incident happens locally, given that school uniform rules require that pupils camouflage themselves by refusing them permission to wear light or bright coloured outer clothing.
