Mother, toddler pinned between cars at shopping centre
Screams were heard when a woman and her two-year-old son were pinned between two cars at Ashgrove this morning.
A car hit a pillar and then pinned the mother and child against another car at the Highpoint Shopping Centre.
The badly-injured woman and child were rushed to hospital.
“A car collided with a concrete pillar and pinned a 37-year-old woman and her child against another car,” a police officer said.
Attendants at a nearby Pilates studio heard the loud crash at about 9.30am and rushed to car park.
“We heard a blood-curdling scream and ran downstairs to see if we could help,” said a local woman whose car was hit by the vehicle.
The woman was unconscious when paramedics arrived. She was taken to the Royal Brisbane Hospital with severe leg injuries.
The child was taken to the Royal Children’s Hospital in a stable condition.
The forensic crash unit is investigating the incident.
