A SCHOOLGIRL was in a serious condition in hospital last night after the moped she was riding was involved in a collision with a car.
The teenager was left with serious injuries following the accident, which happened on the B1118 at Stradbroke, near to the junction with Queen Street.
She was driving a black moped when it was involved in a collision with a blue Peugeot estate car just after 1pm yesterday.

A spokeswoman for the East Anglian Ambulance Trust added: “We did attend and we took a patient into hospital, although we do not have information of the injuries the casualty suffered.”
Mike Cane, a Stradbroke resident, said there were many moped riders in the village and the B1118 was a dangerous road.
“There are lots of haulage companies out here and agricultural vehicles using the B roads,” he added
“It is a dangerous road and there have been quite a few accidents as it's quite bendy and windy. If you are inexperienced, it can be a problem.”
Suffolk police appealed for witnesses to the crash to contact 01473 613500.
