A woman, believed to be in her 30s, has been rushed to hospital after being involved in a road traffic accident when she was knocked down by a car during the busy rush hour period.
The accident happened just after 8am as the pedestrian was crossing the road close to a nearby garage on her commute to work. The car struck the woman and seriously injured her. Emergency services responded quickly to 999 calls and arrived promptly to treat the injured woman.
A doctor, rapid response paramedic and an ambulance treated her at the roadside and then took her to hospital quickly for further trauma treatment. Her condition is stable but she has sustained serious injury.
The emergency services also treated the driver of the vehicle for shock.
A local councillor, who has been campaigning for a pedestrian crossing on the road, responded to the accident
He said: “I told them last month that I did genuinely believe that there could be an accident soon and it would be terrible if someone was seriously injured or killed while we were waiting for funding to become available.
“The point I have made is that a crossing will also slow down the general flow of traffic.
“I’m sure there’s not everyone will be happy with that but if it’s known as a place where they could be then hopefully people will slow down.”
Roads were closed in both directions whilst accident investigators took witness statements and assessed the accident scene. Traffic diversions were put in place.
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
A Police spokesperson said: “Police are appealing for witnesses and information following the report of a one vehicle road traffic collision between a car and a pedestrian outside a business premises .
“It was reported that the collision took place at approximately 8.05am …
“A woman in her 30’s has been taken to hospital for injuries that are believed to be serious at this time.
