Car plows into dozens waiting in food pantry line
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WHDH) -- Dozens of people waiting in line for food were forced to run for their lives when a car plowed into them Thursday evening.
“When I ran out there was just bodies laying in the grass. People were crying and the car was pressed up against fence,” Suzanne Laflamme, who works at the pantry, said.
A car plowed into dozens of families lined up at an Attleboro food pantry, scattering victims across the lawn and into the street.
“It went flying. ‘Cause they were laying maybe 15, 20 feet apart. So there must have been quite an impact,” said Suzanne Laflamme.
It was 5:30 and roughly 50 families with children were in line to pick up groceries when the car came barreling up Sanford Street.
Sophanit Moore, treated and released, now has a cast on her leg and wrist. She's still shaken over what she saw.
“Car coming I don't remember turning towards and crash everyone in line,” said Moore.
Six people, including a woman said to be 9-months pregnant, had to be hospitalized.
“The pregnant lady was leaning up here against the fence,” a witness said,
Police say the driver of the car had a medical emergency, sending her car out of control. Six people were taken to the hospital.
The conditions of all the victims are unknown.
