Ipswich: Copleston High School pupil injured in road crash
A TEENAGE cyclist is in hospital today after an accident as he rode his bike to school this morning.
The 13-year-old Copleston High School pupil suffered a “severe” hand injury after the accident at the junction of Derby Road and Pearce Road shortly after 8am.
The van driver did stop but left a short time later after checking to see if the boy was injured.
Investigating officer, Pc Dave Wright, said: “The driver may not have realised the extent of the boy’s injuries so drove off after talking to him at the scene. We just need to find out from him how the collision happened. We haven’t got any details of the van. We would ask that he or any witnesses call us.”
The boy was taken to The Ipswich Hospital where his injuries are still being assessed by medical staff.
