UPDATE: Child in hospital with minor injuries after Sainsbury’s accident

AN EIGHT-MONTH-OLD boy and his mother have been taken to hospital after a car hit a trolley in the Chichester Sainsbury’s car park this afternoon (September 15).

Police at the scene confirmed the eight month old and his mother had slight injuries but were not seriously hurt.

The eight-month-old boy was sat with his two-year-old brother in the trolly when the navy Vauxhall Zafira knocked the trolly over in the Westhampnett Road car park at midday.

The children’s grandmother arrived at the scene later and said her daughter had both the children in the trolly when the accident happened.

“They’re just shocked,” she said. “She’s very shocked and shaken and obviously her only concern was the children.”

She said her daughter hurt her shoulder in the accident.

The mother and her eight-month-old son were taken to St Richard’s Hospital and the two-year-old boy was left with his grandparents.

The people in the Vauxhall were unhurt in the incident.
