Girl on mend after ‘freak’ accident
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.
