A SIX-year-old boy is in hospital today with a serious head injury after he was in collision with an ambulance.
The accident happened in Bramford Road, Ipswich, close to the Farm Foods store, at around 12.45pm yesterday.
Police and paramedics were called to the scene and the boy was initially taken to Ipswich Hospital.
He was transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridgeshire later in the afternoon with a suspected fractured skull.
The vehicle, which was a non-emergency ambulance, was on its way to pick up a patient for a hospital appointment at the time.
Ian Evans, a spokesman for Care Flight, the company that owns the ambulance, said: “There were no patients on board at the time but the driver and co-driver were extremely upset and shaken up.

“Our concerns are very much with the little boy and his family.”
Part of the A12 was closed after a three-car crash left six people needing hospital treatment.
The collision happened on a stretch of the road between Leiston and Saxmundham just before 6.40pm yesterday.
It involved a Ford Mondeo, a Peugeot 306 and a Daiwoo car.
Four ambulance crews ferried the six injured people to Ipswich Hospital for treatment but Suffolk Police said while some of the injuries were serious none were life-threatening.
A diversion was put in place while the accident scene was cleared.
