The boy, thought to be 12 years old, was taken to hospital after the incident in Viking Way at around 3.35pm today.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said the boy suffered head and serious leg injuries not thought to be life-threatening.

“A young boy, believed to be aged around 12, was knocked over by a car and sustained head and serious leg injuries,” she said.

“We sent two ambulance officers, an ambulance, and Essex Air Ambulance to the scene. Critical care paramedics administered pain relief to the casualty.

“He was then taken by land ambulance to Colchester General Hospital for further emergency treatment.”
