Mum dragged by car after bag snatched

A WOMAN was dragged hundreds of metres by a car driven by thieves who tried to snatch her handbag.

Her young son looked on in horror as the woman was pulled by a car swerving left and right in an attempt to get her to let go after the robbery at Ballyowen Shopping Centre in Lucan, Co Dublin. One witness said he believed she may have been run over by the car.

She was treated last night at Blanchardstown Hospital for serious pelvic injuries, though these were said to be not life-threatening.
