Teenager hurt in Norwich accident

A teenage moped rider was hurt after an accident on a Norwich street.

The 16-year-old moped rider was hurt when he fell from his vehicle at the junction of Ipswich Road and Hall Road just before 9.40am.

Police said it appeared a bus driver used their vehicle to block the road near the Holiday Inn to prevent other cars from hitting the injured teenager.

Police, ambulance and fire crews went to the scene.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service confirmed a 16-year-old boy had been taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

She said his injuries were not life-threatening.

Traffic was moving freely again by 10.15am.
