Bendigo CBD crash: Injured woman thankful for help

UPDATE Friday 1.30pm: EBONIE Prolongeau, the 29-year-old woman injured during Thursday's crash in the CBD, says she is thankful for the support of the Bob Jane T-Marts workers who came to her aid.

Ebonie's mother, Leanne, said the workers were "brilliant".

"They really rallied to her," she said.

"That's all she talked about when she got home.

"It makes you feel really great that people like that are around."

She said her 9-week-old grandson, Huntah, was in the car when the incident occurred.

She said her daughter got out of the car to check on her baby but dropped to the ground immediately.

"She could hear her bones cracking," she said.

She said the workers rushed to Ebonie's assistance, carrying her and Huntah inside and making sure they were okay.

She said Ebonie had a broken foot from the crash and severe bruising.

The incident happened about 9.45am when a woman in her 30s, who was driving north along High Street, turned into Myrtle Street, hitting Ebonie's car, which she was driving along High Street in the direction of Golden Square.

Leading Senior Constable Todd Deary said the woman in her 30s had been charged with failing to give way at an intersection.
