Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A NINE year old girl se­ri­ously in­jured af­ter a col­li­sion in­volv­ing two cars is now re­cov­er­ing at home.

Chloe Grif­fiths suf­fered a frac­tured skull and fa­cial in­juries dur­ing the ‘freak’ ac­ci­dent out­side her home on Ch­ester Road in Mac­cles­field on Sun­day, Au­gust 23.

She was in­jured as she was tak­ing items out of a parked car when a Skoda Fabia col­lided with it.

She has made a speedy re­cov­ery but has been warned she will need fur­ther surgery and will be scarred for life. Her mum Thea Grif­fiths, 30, has praised the quick re­ac­tions of Chloe’s dad and the com­mu­nity.

She said: “When the Skoda hit his parked car Chloe was thrown to the floor. Her dad man­aged to pull her clear as both ve­hi­cles passed over where she had laid. She could have been killed.

“I was faced with Chloe on the floor cov­ered in blood. It was ev­ery par­ent’s worst night­mare.

“Chloe was given first aid by a nurse who was first on the scene. She was amaz­ing and I can’t thank her enough.

“It sounds like a freak ac­ci­dent. Chloe was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Chloe is ex­pected to re­turn to school at Marl­bor­ough Pri­mary next Mon­day.
