1. A six-year-old girl was killed in a Queensland car park on a supermarket trip with her mum and sister.
On Sunday night, a GoFundMe campaign was set up for Indie Armstrong, the “precious daughter” who was lost in the accident. Her older sister, Lily, is receiving treatment in hospital for leg injuries.
“The mother [sic], Sandy, was also critically injured and is currently undertaking numerous surgical procedures,” reads the GoFundMe page.
“They are small business owners on the Sunshine Coast and really just need some time to grieve and get through this extremely hard and heartbreaking time ahead of them.”
The two girls were walking across a pedestrian crossing with their mother at the Nambour Mill Village at 12pm on Sunday when they were struck by a hatchback.
The six-year-old was taken to Nambour Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Her eight-year-old sister was struck in the lower leg but police say she was fortunate not to receive life-threatening injuries.
Their mother, 37, is also being treated in hospital for minor injuries.
The elderly driver was uninjured but is in shock and is assisting police with their enquiries.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating, and has closed part of the supermarket car park.
