A WOMAN in her 70s suffered life-threatening injuries in an accident in Christchurch this morning (Tuesday), say police.

Officers are appealing for witnesses and anyone with dashcam footage to come forward as they investigate the collision between the pedestrian and a car in Quay Road.

The incident involving a black Ford Fiesta and the local woman happened shortly after 8am. Paramedics attended with police who shut the road for about five-and-a-half hours.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to injuries that are believed to be life-threatening. Her family has been informed.

Sgt Lee Savage, of Dorset Police’s traffic unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the woman involved and her loved ones.

“We are carrying out an investigation to establish the full circumstances of this collision and I would ask any witnesses who have not already spoken to police to please contact us.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who was driving in the area and may have captured anything relevant on dashcam.”

He added: “Finally, I would like to thank members of the public for their patience and understanding during the road closure, which was necessary to allow the emergency services to respond to the incident and for an examination of the scene to be carried out.”
