A little girl in a collision with a car in Felixstowe this afternoon is not thought to have suffered life-threatening or life-changing injuries, police have said.

Suffolk police officers were called to the scene in Wesel Avenue at around 12.40pm to reports that a three-year-old girl had been in collision with a Ford Fiesta car.

The accident happened on the brow of the hill – not far from the junction with Brandon Road – where there is a crossing refuge.

The crossing point leads to a large open space, where there is also a children’s playground, and is used by many people as the route to walk to the Morrisons store and Haven Health surgery.

The girl has been taken to Ipswich hospital, but a police spokesman this afternoon said her injuries were not thought to be life-threatening or life-changing following medical examinations.

The road was closed while an investigation got underway at the scene, with the road having been reopened around 3pm.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen what happened to call Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD number 171 of Tuesday, February 16.
