A boy was taken to hospital on Friday after being hit by a van in Bury St Edmunds.

Police were called to reports of a collision between a red panel van and a pedestrian in Gloucester Road at around 4.15pm.

A police spokeswoman said a 10-year-old boy appeared to have sustained ‘quite a serious’ leg injury.

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust said: “We sent a rapid response vehicle and ambulance crew who treated a boy for a foot injury before taking him to West Suffolk Hospital for further care in a stable condition.”

Gloucester Road was closed at 4.30pm and reopened at about 6.40pm.

Anyone who witnessed the accident is asked to call the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101 quoting CAD 285 of October 14.
