A FIVE-year-old boy was taken to hospital today after he was involved in an accident with a police car in an Ipswich road.

The boy was in collision with the marked car in Nacton Road outside Murrayfield Primary School at 3.30pm.

An ambulance was called and the boy was taken to Ipswich Hospital, although he is thought to have escaped without serious injuries.

It is believed the police car involved in the accident was responding to a call at the time and had its siren and blue flashing lights on shortly before the crash.

However at the time of the accident it is understood the car had slowed and had turned off its siren and lights because it had almost reached its destination.

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service said the boy was delivered to hospital just after 3.45pm.
