A REPORT is being prepared for the Coroner after the death of a woman at Towradgi last night (Thursday).
A 81 year old woman was leaving Towradgi Railway Station about 11.25pm, walking along the footpath of Towradgi Road when she has fallen to the ground.
A driver stopped to check on the woman’s welfare and while this was occurring the stationary vehicle was struck by a Mitsubishi sedan travelling in the same direction.
