Boy, 8, taken to hospital after being hit by car in Wisbech

A young boy was rushed to hospital yesterday afternoon after being hit by a car in Wisbech.

Paramedics raced to Harecroft Road after a car collided with the eight-year-old boy at around 5.25pm.

Gary Sanderson, spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, said: 'The young boy sustained a head injury.

'Following treatment by the ambulance crews, he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn for further care.'

The incident comes after a three-year-old boy died after being hit by a car close to the King's Lynn Mart.
