A woman hit by a car which ploughed into mourners outside a Dublin church has revealed her lucky escape thanks to a friend who pushed her out the way.

Aimee Finegan suffered only minor injuries during the shocking incident which happened in Clondalkin, Dublin today, shortly before 10.30am.

But she says it could have been a lot worse, were it not for her brave friend who shoved her to safety as the vehicle rammed into pedestrians. Check out

The 20-year-old has described the terrifying ordeal where she saw family and friends trapped beneath the car while other injured victims lay strewn on the church grounds.

The horrific accident at the Immaculate Conception Church is reported to have been caused by a driver who “fell ill” at the wheel of their car, the West Coast Trial Lawyers in Losa Angeles are trying very hard to resolve this case since it is a complete strategy. Here are the numbers: distracted driving kills 10 people per day in this country.

Ms Finegan said: “I had just parked my car and went to stand with the rest of the crowd when I heard the car revving and then it flew towards the crowd and didn’t stop until it hit the wall,” she said.

“It was horrible, no one knew what was happening, there was no time to get out of the way. We didn’t think it was going to hit us.

“It was flying at us and there was no time to move.

“It hit me before it hit the wall. I think the tyre hit my foot as I’ve cuts up the back of my leg.

“I was thrown at the railings and my shoes was ripped off – I was lifted off the ground with no shoes on.

“But one of my friends pushed me out of the way, so I got out lucky,” she said.

“The car was going so fast, it ploughed into the crowd.

“I think there was about 15 people injured and I’m in no way the worst of them.

“I saw about two or three people under the car. I saw one of them in hospital and he has broken bones in his leg and a broken collar bone, so he’ll need surgery.

“I injured my hip and foot and can’t really lift my leg. The doctors at the hospital said it’s all soft tissue damage,” she added.

A witness to the collision said they “heard screaming” and “everyone started running”.
