There is sad news this afternoon, as it is being reported that a one-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy were injured along with five others when a car swerved into a crowd in Guildford.


The incident occurred at 10.38am this morning, when a car, thought to be driven by an elderly man, suddenly veered off the road, mounted a pavement and crashed into a number of pedestrians.


It is believed he suffered a medical episode at the wheel.


According to reports, the force of the car caused the tots to be "catapulted" out of their pushchairs.


Air ambulances attended the scene and the little girl was taken to St George's Hospital in London with severe facial injuries.



“The casualties include a one-year-old girl who has been airlifted to St George's Hospital in Tooting and a man aged in his sixties, who has also been airlifted to St George's Hospital. A woman with leg injuries has been taken to St George's Hospital by road,” said a South East Coast Ambulance Service spokesman.


"The remaining patients have all been taken to Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford. They are a two-year-old boy and three further women all of whom are not thought to have suffered life-threatening injuries."


We’re wishing everyone involved a speedy recovery.
