A BOY suffered serious head injuries following a crash in Flintshire yesterday.

The 11-year-old from Bagillt was taken to Glan Clwyd Hospital and later transferred to The Walton Centre, Merseyside, after he was in collision with a Ford KA car on
High Street, near The Blossoms pub, at about 5pm.

Sergeant Jane Thomas from the North Wales Police Eastern Roads Policing Unit said the boy was playing on a push scooter when the accident happened.

The road was closed for around half an hour while an ambulance attended and police surveyed the scene.

She told the Leader the boy suffered "serious head injuries" but they were not thought to be life-threatening.

PC Mark Jones said the middle-aged driver of the Ford KA was left shaken but uninjured and that enquiries were ongoing.

Last night collision investigators were surveying the scene and the car, which had a smashed front windscreen, was driven away by police at about 8pm.

A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: "We had the call at 5pm and an ambulance was at the scene within three minutes.

“We had reports that an 11-year-old boy had been involved in a road traffic collision with a car.

“He was transported to Glan Clwyd Hospital and later transferred to The Walton Centre.”

Anyone with information can call the Eastern Roads Policing Unit in St Asaph on 101 or 0845 6071002.
