Man killed in accident outside hospital
A PEDESTRIAN has been killed after he was in a collision with a motorcyclist outside a Suffolk hospital.
A PEDESTRIAN was killed tonight after he was in a collision with a motorcyclist outside a Suffolk hospital.
It is thought the elderly man attempted to cross Heath Road, close to the entrance of Ipswich Hospital, at about 6.20pm when the collision with the Red Honda motorcycle happened. The motorbike then collided with a telegraph pole and a wall.
The motorcyclist, from Ipswich, was taken to Ipswich Hospital but his injuries were not thought to be serious. The road was closed but reopened shortly after 9pm.
Police officers said they were keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the accident and said that despite it being busy not many people stopped.
The man killed, who lives locally, will not be named until all next of kin have been informed of the tragedy. Police say investigations will continue and an inquest will take place in due course.
In a separate incident tonight, a boy, believed to be 16, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with serious injuries after he was in collision with a black Renault Clio on Ling Road in Palgrave, near Diss.
