Police are appealing for witnesses after a 14-year-old boy was knocked off his scooter by a car in Yoxford near Saxmundham.
The collision happened at around 4pm Tuesday, April 23, on the A1120, High Street.
According to a spokesman for Suffolk police, the boy was riding along the pavement and waited on the flagstones as a car approached.
However, a lorry drove past a number of parked cars, restricting the width of the road and forcing the car to mount the flagstones.
In doing so, the boy was knocked off his scooter.
