'Sadly, despite all the best efforts of the Helimedix, working alongside fire and rescue crews and the police, a young child was pronounced dead at the scene. Our thoughts are with the family and friends at this time,' said a Magpas spokesman.
'The child was given the best possible chance of survival, it is very, very sad. It is very upsetting for the crew and everybody involved,' she added.
A spokesman for the East Anglian Air Ambulance said: 'It's very traumatic for them because it involved a child. They are a bit shaken up about this one.'
The road re-opened at around 2.40pm.
