Elderly woman dies after being found injured on the road

admin News

Police are appealing for information as investigations continue into the death of an 83-year-old woman, who was found seriously injured in Miller yesterday.

About 11.45am (Tuesday 17 February 2015), police and NSW Ambulance Paramedics responded to reports of a woman lying on the road in Shropshire Street, near the intersection of Dorset Place.

Mrs Jean Harrison, of Miller, was found at the scene with a cut to the back of her neck and to her arm but was unable to tell police how she was injured.

NSW Ambulance Paramedics took Mrs Harrison to Liverpool Hospital; however, police from Green Valley Local Area Command have been advised she died early this morning.

Detectives hope that the results of a post mortem examination may clarify how Mrs Harrison came to be injured.

While investigators have not ruled anything out, initial advice suggests the severity of her injuries is consistent with her being struck by a vehicle.

Police are now appealing for anyone who may have seen Mrs Harrison before she was found to call Green Valley Police. Investigators are also appealing to anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

Mrs Harrison was wearing a cream short-sleeved top and a brown floral skirt and was carrying a dark shoulder bag at the time of the incident.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Green Valley police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/ Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
