Investigation after boy, 14, found lying in road

Police investigating after a teenage boy was found lying face down in the road have said it was the result of a medical condition.

The 14-year-old was found by emergency response paramedics who had been sent to the scene in Forest Road, Onehouse, near Stowmarket, at about 8.40am on Wednesday.

The paramedics, who had been alerted by a 999 call made by a member of the public, asked for an ambulance, which later took the boy, who had suffered minor head injuries, to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

It is thought that the boy had been walking to school at the time when he was injured.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “He was found in the road, conscious and breathing and talking and he was lying face down when he was found.
