A five year-old boy has been left with life threatening injuries following a car crash near Bude. The A3072 at Launcells was closed for several hours yesterday afternoon following the accident which involved just one car, a blue Honda.
The boy was airlifted to Plymouth's Derriford Hospital before being transferred to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol. Frenchay specialises in treating head injuries. Another child was in the car along with a female driver. The driver was taken to hospital, but it's not thought her injuries were serious.
