A teenager was airlifted to hospital with serious head injuries following a collision with a pick-up truck on Tuesday evening.

At around 6.30pm, a girl in her late teens was walking down Beatty Road in Great Yarmouth when she was involved in a collision with an Isuzu Rodeo Denver.

The girl was then airlifted by the East of England Air Ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where she is being treated for serious head injuries.

Police have now appealed for anybody who may have witnessed the collision to get in touch, and are particularly keen to speak to any passengers on a bus which was in the area around the time of the incident.

Anybody with information regarding the collision should contact PC Matthew Buckoke at Acle Roads Policing on 101.
