An elderly woman has died in Ninewells Hospital after being hit by a van yesterday.
Police confirmed this morning that Barbara Stormont, 81, passed away from her injuries after the collision in Arbroath.
Emergency services rushed to the scene on Keptie Street following the incident at about 3.25pm.
Traffic along Dundee’s Kingsway was halted by police to allow the ambulance carrying the 81-year-old to get to hospital in a quicker time.
The road where the incident happened was sealed off by officers for some time yesterday while investigations were carried out.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said the driver of a black VW van involved in the collision was unhurt.
He added: “Anyone who may have witnessed the collision and has not yet come forward is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.”
