A nine year old girl was released from the hospital with only minor injuries after being pinned under a car.
The girl and her mother were leaving the Whole Foods store on Roswell Avenue around 2:30 on Sunday afternoon. A driver in the parking lot lost control of his vehicle and the car backed into a large cement planter and over the girl.
The Sandy Springs police officer that responded to the call says that the “heavy cement planter took most of the impact from the car.” This prevented the child from further injury.
The child was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. She was released several hours later. The girl suffered severe abrasions, but no serious injuries. She is recovering at the family’s home in Lilburn.
It is expected that the girl will fully recover.
The accident is currently under investigation; no charges have been filed.
