An 11-year-old girl suffered a fractured skull and bleed on the brain during a suspected hit-and-run collision, a court has heard. 

Adam Darbous, of Cecil Road, Ipswich, appeared before the town’s magistrates to face charges of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop after an accident and possession of cannabis with intent to supply in relation to the incident. 

The child is currently receiving treatment at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge following the incident in Portman Road, close to the junction with London Road, Ipswich on 3 February at 7pm. 

She was sitting in a red Daihatsu parked by the side of the road as the occupants were preparing to go to nearby shops. 

He entered no plea to all three charges and was remanded in custody to appear before Ipswich Crown Court on March 7.
