Five people were said to be seriously injured after the vehicle left Lowestoft Road in Worlingham near Beccles.

An ambulance spokeswoman said three children among the group of pedestrians “went under the wheels of the car.”

Police closed the road following the collision, which happened shortly before 1.45pm, near All Saints Church.

Six ambulances and the air ambulance are still on scene and diversions are in place.

A police spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a single vehicle collision involving a number of pedestrians, some of whom are believed to be children.

“There are up to ten casualties although none are thought to be life threatening.”

One of the main roads into Lowestoft has been closed following the collision. Beccles Road, at the roundabout near the Carlton Crown public house, has been “sealed off” while emergency services are at the scene.
