AN ELDERLY woman has died after she was hit by a bin lorry in Worcester city centre.

Emergency services received multiple 999 calls shortly after 9.15am today (Monday) with reports of a collision in The Shambles.

An ambulance, responder paramedic and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene along with the police, but the 69-year-old was confirmed dead at the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival crews found a pedestrian, a woman, who had been in collision with a lorry.

“Sadly, it quickly became apparent to ambulance staff that nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed dead at the scene.

“Ambulance staff assessed several bystanders who were suffering from the effects of shock after witnessing the incident but no one required hospital treatment.”

Police are urging any witnesses to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
