Woman dies in pavement car crash


A WOMAN has died after being hit by a car which mounted the pavement on a city street.

The woman, understood to be in her 30s, was injured in Perth at around 10.15am today.

She had been walking in Jeanfield Road, near to its junction with Cornhill Road and Burghmuir Road, when a red Toyota Corolla was seen to mount the pavement and collide with her.

The woman sustained serious head injuries as a result of the collision and was taken by ambulance to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, where, tragically, it was later confirmed that she had died.

She has not been formally identified at this time.

A car matching the description of the vehicle involved was traced elsewhere in Perth and an 81-year-old man is currently assisting police with enquiries.
