Mother and son (5) knocked down as a car crashes through a wall and into a school

At approximately 13h31 on Friday 13 October 2017, Netcare 911 responded to reports that a car had crashed into a school on Regent Street in Yeoville.

Reports from the scene allege that the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed through a boundary wall and into the side of a school building. The incident and preceding events will form part of a police investigation.

A mother and child who were walking outside the school were struck by the vehicle and assessed and treated by Netcare 911 and other paramedics at the scene. The five-year-old boy had sustained moderate to serious injuries including a fracture to one of his legs. The mom had sustained relatively minor injuries. Fortunately, both were in a stable condition and were transported by ambulances to a hospital for further assessment and care.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured in the incident.

The local SAPS were also at the scene.
