AN 82-YEAR-OLD woman who was seriously injured in a collision last month on Wisbech market place has died in hospital.

Mary Bailey of The Barracks, in Gorefield, was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital following the collision with a slow moving car outside Loafers Coffee Shop, in Market Place, at about 11.20am on November 22.

Mrs Bailey’s injuries were described as serious but not life threatening at the time, but her condition deteriorated and she died in hospital on Friday.

Police have spoken to the driver of the vehicle, a silver Volvo S60, who was a 79-year-old man.

Following the collision, the driver went to find Mrs Bailey’s sister in law in Horsefair bus station and took her to the town’s ambulance station to find out which hospital Mrs Bailey was taken to.

He then drove her to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn, stayed there for two hours and then drove Mrs Bailey’s sister in law back to her home. He also phones relatives and friends of Mrs Bailey.

Today, a police spokesman said: “Officers are investigating and would like to speak to anyone who saw the collision.”
