Children struck in hit and run on the Gold Coast

POLICE have found a silver Mitsubishi Magna wagon which is believed to have run down two children outside a primary school on the Gold Coast this afternoon.

Emergency crews rushed to Coombabah State Primary School shortly after 3pm following reports two young children had been run down on Oxley Drive.

It’s understood the offending vehicle, believed to have been driven by a female, drove through a red light and hit the kids who had walked onto the road at a green walk signal.


Witnesses said the impact forced one of the kids over the bonnet of the car. The driver fled the scene of the accident.

Witnesses provided police with a registration number of the vehicle and said it had a visible disability sticker on the windscreen.

Police have managed to locate the suspect car and are currently questioning the female driver.

A 10-year-old girl was been transported to Gold Coast University Hospital with neck pain.

A second child, a young boy, reportedly has an ankle injury.
