A five-year-old boy was taken to hospital after suffering what were believed to be life-changing injuries in a car crash in Mildenhall.
The incident, involving a car and the boy, happened at around 2.55pm on Monday on Monday in Bridge Farm Close, police have said.
Paramedics and police officers attended the scene, and the air ambulance was called shortly afterwards.
The five-year-old was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for further treatment and a full assessment by doctors.
Initial reports from police stated the boy was in a stable condition but with potentially life-changing injuries and had been airlifted to hospital.
