Police hunt fatal hit-andrun driver of stolen car
An elderly woman died in a hit-andrun crash after the driver of 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 on the A24 in Horsham, West Sussex, on Friday afternoon. A 70-year-old woman was driving a Ford Fiesta when she was hit by the car as it joined the northbound carriageway on the Farthings Hill roundabout near Broadbridge Heath just before 2.30pm.
She died at the scene. Her friend and passenger, also a 70-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries.
