A family involved in a horrific car crash on the way to pick up a birthday cake for a 4-year-old family member’s birthday party are shaken but okay, their family say.
Mark Cotton, Jakki Warren and Chelsea Warren were crossing the junction of Bennett’s Castle Lane and Lindisfarne Road at around 11am when they were involved in a collision with another car.
The impact from the two way collision flipped their people carrier and caused it to roll three times before landing on its roof, smashing the windows.
Emergency services have said they are “lucky to be alive” following the freak incident.
They were collecting the birthday cake for a party happening that evening, which subsequently was cancelled following the crash.
Stephanie Warren, sister of Chelsea and daughter of Mark and Jakki, said: “We are so so thankful that they are alive.
“My mum keeps saying her sister was looking down on her from above.”
