Head injury was fatal for eight-year-old

An eight-year-old boy in Essex, who was in collision with a Porsche, died in hospital from the head injury he suffered as a result.

The Porsche had been left by its owner at a well known garage firm for repairs when two of the workers, one aged 31 and the other 18, reportedly took the car out on the road for a joy-ride.

A 17-year-old boy, who works near the scene of the accident, claims to have seen the workers perform a wheel-spin in front of another vehicle a few moments before the incident.

The victim was struck down as he crossed the road on his scooter with a friend, having just had a meal at McDonald's with his older brother. He suffered pelvis and head injuries and later died in hospital.

The garage at which the two men where employed was only 200 yards from the site of the fatal accident and the customer service director of the firm said, "Our deepest sympathies are with [the boy's] family at this tragic time. We are helping the police with their enquiries and, in addition, a senior management team has travelled to [Essex] to carry out our own investigation."

The men who took the Porsche were arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and have been released on bail until April. If the men are found liable for the boy's fatal head injury, then his family may choose to make a car accident claim for the distress and suffering caused.
