Chaos as teen hit, fence smashed by sleeping P-plater

A SCHOOLBOY is in a serious condition in hospital after being hit by a car while waiting for a bus in Brisbane's south.

The 16-year-old boy was waiting with two friends near a bus stop when the ute mounted the kerb, hit him from behind and crashed into a fence.

Part of Algester Rd, near Bannockburn Cresent in Parkinson, remains closed while the Forensic Crash Unit assessed the scene.

It stopped less than a metre from his bedroom window.

"I came running up and started yelling at the driver 'Why are you driving like an idiot?' and he was just like 'Oh my god, I fell asleep'," Mr Haynes said.

"As soon as he said that I told him to stay in the car and try to calm down.

Mr Haynes said the driver of the car with red P-plates was "just a young kid".

"This was just a kid who was on his way home from working night shift at Maccas," he said.

"He'd done a full night shift, he was in his uniform.

Upon impact, the teenager's shoe came off and landed on the Hayes' roof.

"His shoe is on our roof," Mr Hayes said.

"It's a hell of a long way; you've got a pool and then you have a backyard."

"By the time I got to the (injured) boy, there were so many people around and the ambulance and police had been called because we knew he wasn't it a good way."

The 16-year-old was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

The teenager's friends were uninjured.

Algester Rd is blocked in both directions between Bannockburn Cres and Nottingham Rd.

Police advice motorists to avoid the area if possible.
