At around 4.28pm on Monday 9 October, officers were called to reports of a road traffic collision on Queens Drive, Nantwich.
Officers attended the scene and found the collision involved a white Ford transit van and a pedestrian.
The pedestrian, a four-year-old boy, sustained serious head injuries and was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Alder Hey Hospital by air ambulance.
He remains in hospital at this time and is in a stable condition.
The driver of the van, a 54-year-old man, was uninjured.
An investigation into the collision has been launched and officers are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any dashcam footage.

“The collision occurred on Queens Drive at a busy time of day, and as part of our investigation we’re keen to hear from anyone who may have been travelling in the area and witnessed the incident.
