A WOMAN has died after being hit by a car in Leyland.

The 53-year-old was stepping out from a shop doorway onto the pavement in Sumner Street at around 1pm, when the incident happened.

A gold Nissan Qashqai mounted the pavement and collided with the woman.

She was pronounced dead at the scene and the road remained closed for several hours while police carried an investigation into the circumstances of the death.

Police are also appealing for any witnesses to the crash to come forward.

PC James Power, from the road policing unit, said his thoughts with the family of the woman.

“This is a tragic incident and my thoughts are with the family of the woman,” he said.

“An investigation is underway but I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this collision or with any information that could assist with our investigation to contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting LC-20140707-0588.”
