A TEN-year-old girl suffered “significant head injuries” today after she was in collision with a car outside her Ipswich home.

Joanne Cowey is believed to have walked out from behind an ice cream van in Burns Road when the incident happened at around 4pm.

An eye-witness said she was thrown into the air and “cut her head open”.

As police forensics experts examined the scene, neighbours today said they have been campaigning for the last year for road safety measures to be brought in amid fears that someone would get hurt.
