Toddler and two women injured
A young woman who was badly injured after she was hit by a car in a supermarket car park is still in a serious condition in hospital.
Three people, including a toddler, were injured after the smash in the Tesco Crooksfoot car park, in Hythe Road, Willesborough.
The driver, who is in his 80s, also hit other vehicles and a row of bollards outside the supermarket’s Harris & Hoole cafe before striking a 32-year-old woman.
She was airlifted to hospital in London with serious injuries where she remains in a serious condition.
A second woman in her 30s and a toddler – whose car was hit – were also taken to the nearby William Harvey Hospital with minor head injuries following the incident at around 11.45am last Thursday.
Witnesses reported seeing a woman pedestrian, who was waiting to have her car washed at the car wash in the store’s car park, being struck by a blue Renault Scenic car, which then crashed into a tree.
The male driver of the car – which ended up on its side in a bush – and his female passenger were also taken to hospital as a precaution.
The most serious injured vic- tim was initially taken to the William Harvey by ambulance before being flown to St George’s Hospital, in London.
A SECAmb spokesman said two other people were treated by paramedics but were discharged at the scene.
Kentish Express reporter Sam Williams said witnesses at the scene told her a blue car came round the corner at speed hitting two parked cars and taking out six bollards in front of the store’s cafe before ending up in a bush.
Manager of the car wash, Edmond Rada, said: “We just heard the bang and then turned our heads around.
“We saw the car end up in trees. The lady from the coffee shop turned up to give them a hand.
“One of my guys ran down there and the next minute there was an ambulance.
“They all tried to help as much as they could before the fire brigade and ambulance got there.
“The lady who got hit was waiting for her car to get cleaned. She was waiting on the corner and the guys were just about to call her over.
“If it was just one minute later she probably would have been alright.”
It is believed three cars were damaged in the incident.
An area from the car wash to the coffee shop was cordoned off and police forensic teams were also on the scene.
