Woman hit by car beside the A303 in Wiltshire

A woman was seriously injured when she was hit by a car as she waited by the roadside in Wiltshire after her car had broken down.

The accident happened just before 2000 GMT on Sunday on the A303 at White Hill near Wyley.

Police said she had stayed in her car on the inside lane when two cars crashed as they swerved to avoid her.

Nobody was injured and the drivers involved in the crash helped her out but she was then struck by another car.

The elderly woman was taken to Salisbury District Hospital and is being treated in intensive care.

Wiltshire police ask anyone who may have witnessed the accident to contact them.
