A 13-year-old boy was taken to hospital following a fail-to-stop collision in Ipswich yesterday afternoon.

The boy was cycling along Newbury Road at about 2.15pm when he was involved in a collision with a blue car, described as having a Smurf toy or character inside the front windscreen. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop at the scene.

Police are asking the driver, anyone who may know who he or she is, or anyone who witnessed the collision, to call Pc John Clarke at the roads policing unit on 101, quoting CAD 269 of today’s date.
