She was critically injured on or near a pedestrian crossing close to the junction of the B2223 Dominion Road with Southdown View Road in Worthing at 6.50pm last Thursday.

A woman from Worthing, she was flown to Southampton General Hospital with serious injuries, where she died on Saturday night (August 2).

The car involved was a silver Ford Focus estate, driven by a 51-year-old man from Hurstpierpoint, who was unhurt.

He was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and has been bailed until October 23.

Sussex Police is now appealing for witnesses.

Anyone who saw the collision or either party involved just before the incident should call Sussex Police on 101 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk, quoting Operation Foxcote.

How appalling! What a terrible way to die for an innocent, elderly lady - going about her everyday business - and at the hands of a stupid, dangerous driver.

I feel for her family.

Yes, it is appalling and is very sad - but you don't know that it was the driver's fault, nor do you know that he was stupid and dangerous.

Why is he not in custody?

Someone died as a result of his driving. The police claim he was driving dangerously, because that is what he was arrested. for.

It's manslaughter at the very least.

Funny, but I get the impression that if he'd called her a lezzie, he'd still be behimnd bars.

When there's an RTA as above it is formality to arrest the driver even if its not his fault.
