Kids seriously injured after car crashes into school
Cape Town - Two children have been seriously injured after a car crashed into a school outside Cape Town. The car was apparently being chased by a police vehicle, a witness told eNews on Friday.
One person, an adult, died in the incident at JS Kloppers Primary. Another adult was seriously injured, Cape Town Fire and Rescue’s Theo Layne told eNews. Both adults were inside the vehicle.
One of the injured children was airlifted to Red Cross Children’s Hospital and another was taken to hospital by ambulance. A spokesperson for the school told News24 that "all the children are safe".
eNews quoted a witness as saying that the car was seen speeding through the streets of the suburb - a police car was apparently in pursuit.
Soon after, the car "went through the school’s gate" and eventually ended up lodged halfway into a wall.
Counselling was being provided for the very traumatised children and staff, as parents started arriving at the school.
