A 10-year-old boy has been admitted to hospital with serious injuries following a road accident in Co. Clare.

The young boy was involved in a road collision on the afternoon of February 25th.

He was reportedly hit by a vehicle in Purcell Park in Shannon on Sunday.

A local alerted  Shannon Fire Station following the accident, but Gardaí and the National Ambulance Service also attended the scene.

The boy suffered serious injuries so an ambulance transported him to the HSE’s Emergency Aeromedical Service.

The helicopter then airlifted the young boy to University Hospital Limerick, where he is currently being treated for his injuries.

The Garda Forensic Collision Investigators are set to conduct an investigation this morning, Monday, February 26th.

The scene of the accident has been cornered off, according to reports.

Gardaí have covered the vehicle involved in the accident in tarpaulins and have launched an investigation.

Gardaí told The Sun: “The child has been taken to University Hospital Limerick to be treated for injuries believed to be serious at this time.

No further information is available at this time.

We’re keeping the young boy and his loved ones in our thoughts during this distressing time.
