A WOMAN, 77, was seriously injured when she was hit by a car while taking her grandchildren to school in the morning.
At around 8.45am they were on a pedestrian crossing on Camino de Son Rapinya in Palma, heading to La Salle School, when they were hit by a Porsche driven by a woman aged 40.
There were lots of vehicles in the area and two Local Police officers directing traffic, but the driver said that she had the sun in her eyes and didn’t see the pedestrians. She had not been drinking.
The elderly woman was sent flying and landed in the road, sustaining several broken bones and a head wound. The police officers rushed to help her and witnesses took charge of the two frightened children. She was taken to hospital by ambulance in a serious condition. The boy, five, was also taken to hospital with slight injuries. His sister, seven, was unharmed.
