A girl airlifted to hospital with serious head injuries after a collision involving a car in Suffolk is no longer feared to have suffered life-threatening injuries, police have said.

The girl, a pedestrian thought to be around 11 years old, was injured after a collision involving an Audi in Tom Crisp Way, Lowestoft at around 3.30pm today.

She was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge in a “critical condition” after suffering “quite serious head and pelvis injuries”, an East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said. Police also initially said she had suffered “serious head injuries”.

Her parents were also driven to the hospital by police.

But this evening, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “We have received an update from the hospital and her injuries are no longer thought to be life-threatening or life-changing. They are not as serious as originally thought.”
