Woman dies after being hit by lorry in Bournemouth

A woman has died in hospital after she was hit by an articulated lorry in Bournemouth.

The driver stopped in Wimborne Road, Winton, after people started banging on his door to tell him a woman was trapped under the cab, said police.

They said the driver was able to raise the suspension enabling emergency services to reach the woman.

The 75-year-old was taken to hospital with leg injuries, but her condition deteriorated overnight and she died.

Police said the accident happened in slow moving, heavy traffic outside the G&T's store.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.
