Mum's leg crushed in front of students in crash outside school


A mother had her leg and foot crushed on Tuesday after she was hit by a car while she was removing her child from her vehicle in a horrific crash outside a Queensland school.

The three-vehicle crash happened at Buderim Mountain State School on Main Street on the Sunshine Coast and saw a car strike a parked car which pushed forward and struck another parked car, it’s believed.

A Queensland Ambulance spokesperson confirmed to Yahoo7 the incident did take place just after 10.20am and the woman, aged in her 30s, was significantly injured.

An infant and a woman in her 80s were also involved but aren’t believed to have sustained serious injuries.

“The woman in her 30s was transported in a serious but stable condition with a significant leg and foot injury,” the spokesperson said.

“All three were taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital – the infant and the woman in her 80s were taken as a precaution.”

It’s understood several students and staff were witnesses to the incident, with all of them receiving the support they need.

Principal of the school, Neil Jenkins, described it as a “freak accident”.

“It was a member of the community, not related to the school, hit a car out the front of the school,” he told Yahoo7.

“A couple of students and staff did see the incident and have been provided with support.”

Police were also called and are investigating the incident.
