77-year-old woman dies after being hit by car in Ashley Centre car park
A 77-year-old woman has died after being hit by a car in the Ashley Centre car park last Monday.
The incident took place at 10am on floor 3B of the car park, where the 77-year-old woman, and another woman in her 20s, were hit by a silver Nissan Micra being driven by a woman in her 80s.
The woman was taken to St George’s Hospital, in Tooting, for treatment for serious head injuries and died there on Thursday, September 27.
A file is being prepared for the coroner and formal identification and a post-mortem will be held in due course.
The other pedestrian was also taken to St George’s Hospital with leg and pelvis injuries, but was discharged later the same day.
The driver of the vehicle was not injured but was taken to Epsom Hospital as a precaution where she remains for observation.
A spokesman for Epsom and Ewell Council, which owns the car park, said: "The Council wishes to express our deepest sympathy with family of the deceased.
"A police investigation is on-going into this tragic accident and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."
David Beddows, general manager of The Ashley Centre, to which the car park is joined, added: "Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the deceased."
Anyone who witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it should call the police on 101, quoting reference P12280525.
