A TEENAGER is in hospital with serious head injuries after a car ploughed into a garden wall in Ipswich today.

Ethel Meager, 84, was sleeping at her Belmont Road home when a silver Ford Mondeo crashed through her front wall and careered to a stop on her lawn, just feet from her front door.

The male driver of the car and a 15-year-old girl passenger were both taken to Ipswich Hospital with head injuries and the teenager has now been transferred to Cambridgeshire's Addenbrooke's Hospital.
