Mother And Children Injured After Being Run Over In Safeway Parking Lot
VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a woman and her two children sustained serious injuries in a Safeway grocery store parking lot when an employee attempting to park his vehicle ran them over.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office tells The Columbian that 34-year-old Melissa McAllister and her two sons, ages 4 years and 21 months, were injured Saturday morning.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Fred Neiman says the car had to be hoisted up to remove the three from underneath it.
Authorities say 18-year-old Babucarr Touray was parking his 2015 Honda Accord when for unknown reasons the vehicle accelerated.
The vehicle went through a hedge and struck the three pedestrians walking on the other side.
Police say Touray was uninjured, showed no signs of impairment, and was cooperating with authorities.
