May 17th 2017 in Benfleet, Essex England. A mother and her two children survive being hit by a car after a nearby accident.
Mandy White, 42, was walking her children to school when the horror smash happened last Wednesday.
The CCTV footage shows a car being knocked out of control after another clipped it at a dangerous junction.
It then suddenly mounted the pavement and rammed into the family.
It crashed into Poppy, five, and 17-month-old baby Taylor, who was in a pram.
The distraught mother can be seen scrambling to the aid of Poppy, who was trapped under the front of the vehicle.
The mum-of-four who lives in Benfleet, Essex, said: “A white Vauxhall Corsa went straight through the junction of The Avenue and Seymour Road instead of giving way. The lines are so faint that they are barely visible.
“It clipped the back of a silver Toyota Yaris which forced that car to spin 90 degrees and mount the pavement.
“The car hit us and pinned me, my Taylor who was in a pram, and my five-year-old daughter Poppy up against a fence.
“I remember lying on the floor and my five-year-old was laying right next to me with the car over her legs.
“We were all screaming because the car was still revving and I thought that car was going to crush my children. I don’t remember how we got out. We’re lucky to be alive.”
Mandy feared her children would be crushed as they were trapped between the car and the fence.
The family was rushed to hospital with Mandy being treated for a facial injury and Poppy treated for leg injuries.
Luckily the young girls avoided long term injuries though Mandy has suffered whiplash and says she is “really hurting at the moment”.
