Tod­dler hurt in mid­night car flip

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

A TOD­DLER was in­jured in a car rollover on the Kwinana Free­way late Tues­day night.

The south­bound car rolled af­ter Ar­madale Road in Atwell about mid­night.

The boy re­ceived some lac­er­a­tions and abra­sions and was taken to Perth Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal to check for fur­ther in­juries.

A St John Am­bu­lance spokes­woman said the boy was in a booster seat and wear­ing a seat belt when the car flipped.

“When we ar­rived, the child was qui­etly sit­ting on his dad’s lap,” she said.

She said it was al­ways dif­fi­cult to as­sess se­ri­ous­ness of in­juries to chil­dren.
