Woman, 62, dies after being struck by car in Cathcart

A woman has died after being hit by a car in Cathcart in Glasgow.

Anne Carnochan, 62, was struck by a Ford Focus as she crossed Clarkston Road near to Merrylee Road at about 18:40 on Friday.

Police said she died at the scene. The car driver was not injured.

Officers have appealed for people who were in the area, or anyone in the flats overlooking the road, who may have seen the crash to come forward.

PC Lindsay Coburn said: "The woman had been to the local shops and was crossing Clarkston Road when she was struck by the car.

"The weather was miserable last night - very, very wet - however, there were a number of people, both pedestrians and drivers, at the shops and on Clarkston Road so it is possible they saw the crash.

"There are also a number of flats that overlook the road so again, if you saw the crash, then please contact us."
