Woman dies after mobility scooter crash
An elderly woman pedestrian who was struck by a mobility scooter has died, police said today.
Lillian Macey, 90, of Harlow, Essex, died at Salisbury Hospital, where she was being treated for leg injuries after the incident in Sandown on the Isle of Wight on Tuesday.
Mrs Macey had just crossed Sandown High Street on a zebra crossing when the collision with the scooter happened on the pavement.
The scooter driver, a 76-year-old man, is being interviewed by police but has not been arrested.
Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police initially said the dead woman had been the victim of a hit-and-run but today said this was not the case.
Mrs Macey was taken to St Mary's Hospital in Newport, but was later transferred to Salisbury, where she died the following day.
A post-mortem examination is to be carried out by a Home Office pathologist.
Acting Inspector Paul Bailey said: "We need to hear from any witnesses who saw the collision or who saw the blue scooter being driven prior to the collision.
"It is important to reach any witnesses who may have been holidaying on the Isle of Wight and have returned to their homes."
