A WOMAN suffered minor injuries after she was struck by a car in Peterborough.
The accident took place in Maskew Avenue, between Bourges Boulevard and Lincoln Road, Peterborough, near the Kwik Fit garage yesterday morning.

The driver of the vehicle was uninjured and did not require medical treatment.
