Hit-and-run kills woman
An elderly woman has died in a hit-and-run crash after a stolen car refused to stop for police moments earlier.
Officers launched a manhunt for the driver of the stolen black Mercedes AMG estate who fled the scene of the collision on the A24 in Horsham, West Sussex, on Friday.
A 70-year-old pensioner was driving a Ford Fiesta when she was hit by the car, Sussex Police said. She died at the scene. Her friend and passenger, a 70-year-old Horsham woman, was left with minor injuries.
Officers searched the area with dogs and a helicopter but to no avail.
Officers believe the stolen Mercedes was taken during a burglary in nearby town Goring-by-Sea.
