Woman left shaken by freak car parking accident in Dereham

An elderly woman was left shaken following a freak accident in a Dereham car park.

The woman, in her 70s, reversed her automatic Renault Megane over another parked car at Homebase on Friday.

It is thought she accidentally hit the accelerator as she manoeuvred and mounted a silver Saab 9-5 SE parked directly behind.

Police, paramedics and a Dereham fire crew were called to the store just before 3.30pm and the Renault has since been towed away.

Nobody was in the Saab at the time of the accident.
