Investigation launched after bus involved in crash in Norwich in which boy, six, suffered suspected broken leg
An investigation has been launched after a bus was involved in a collision in Norwich in which a six-year-old boy suffered a suspected broken leg.
The boy, who has not been named, sustained injuries to his thigh and ankle and is believed to have broken his lower leg after the incident which happened on Plumstead Road East, Norwich at about 1.15pm yesterday.
The collision is said to have involved a double-decker bus heading towards the city.
A spokesman for First South East and Midlands said they were 'aware of the incident and are currently internally investigating'.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called to attend the scene, near to the shops on Plumstead Road East, while a doctor and paramedic team also responded to the call in a rapid response vehicle.
They gave pain relief to the young patient and travelled with him in a road ambulance to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment.
His injuries are not believed to be life threatening and his condition is described as stable. A Norfolk police spokesman said diversions were put in place at the Heartsease Lane end of Plumstead Road East and at the roundabout on Woodside Road while the incident was ongoing.
