Woman squeezed between two cars at Whangarei supermarket


A woman broke a leg after she was squeezed between two cars at a supermarket carpark.

Shoppers at The Warehouse on Okara Dr in Whangarei watched in horror andrushed to assist the injured about 4.30pm today.

Police were first at the scene followed by a St John paramedic team that attended to the woman on the ground before transporting her to the Whangarei Hospital.

A Hyundai Hatchback, Hyundai Accord and a Mercedes were involved in the crash.

A witness said he was about to turn into the carpark but stopped after seeing a red Hyundai hatchback reversing from the disabled carpark and smashing into two other cars.
