A YOUNG child has reportedly died after being hit by an out-of-control vehicle in a car park in suburban Melbourne.
Traffic has been described as “mayhem” around Berwick, in southeast Melbourne, after the “nasty” crash in the carpark of the Epworth Specialist Centre when the vehicle smashed into parked cars outside the medical facility around midday Friday.
Visuals taken from a Seven News helicopter from above the incident show a 4WD flipped on its side and numerous cars smashed around it.
Two adults were injured, one woman with minor injuries. Paramedics and firefighters were also on the scene.
“Paramedics were called to a road crash just before midday in Kangan Drive at Berwick,” a statement from Ambulance Victoria read.
“On arrival, they found three people with injuries. One of them was a young child who was in a critical condition.
“A man, believed to be in his 50s, was taken to Dandenong Hospital in a stable condition.
“A woman, believed to be in her 60s, was taken to Casey Hospital with minor injuries.”
