Woman, 65, trapped under car after she and mum, 89, were hit in Bunnings car park


An elderly woman and her daughter have been taken to hospital after they were hit by a reversing car at a Bunnings car park, in the NSW Blue Mountains. 

The 89-year-old and her 65-year-old daughter were standing together at the Katoomba car park when they were struck by a reversing vehicle on Thursday morning, CareFlight said in a statement.

Emergency crews arrived shortly before 10.30am to provide initial care for the pair.

The elderly woman suffered a leg injury and was taken to nearby Springwood where a NSW Ambulance helicopter flew her to hospital in a stable condition. The helicopter had been forced to land in Springwood due to bad weather.

Her daughter remained trapped under a vehicle for about 90 minutes.

CareFlight’s medical team helped NSW Ambulance paramedics treat the woman, working alongside Police Rescue and NSW Fire and Rescue crews to carefully free her.

She was treated at the scene for injuries to the head, legs and arms before CareFlight’s medical team escorted her in a road ambulance to Westmead Hospital, in a serious but stable condition.
