Woman fighting for life in hospital identified five days on after being hit by car at Charing Cross in Glasgow STV News

A woman fighting for her life in hospital has been identified five days after she was struck by a car at Charing Cross in Glasgow.

The woman was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital after she was struck by a grey VW Tiguan car on Elmbank Street at its junction with St Vincent Street around 8.15pm on Thursday.

The driver of the car, a 57-year-old man, was uninjured.

Extensive enquiries were launched to identify the injured woman, who has been described as being in a critical condition, and to alert her family.

Officers revealed on Tuesday that the 64-year-old woman has now been identified and her family has been informed.

A spokesperson for the force confirmed that she remains in hospital as enquiries continue.

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 3467 of February 2, 2023.

The road was closed for several hours to allow crash scene investigators to conduct their enquiries.

The crash is the third to occur in Glasgow city centre in the same week, after 22-year-old Emma Newman, from Moulineaux, Paris, was pronounced dead after being struck by an HGV in the city’s Broomielaw area last Monday.

A woman was then pronounced dead on St Vincent Street, near the M8, after a crash involving two cars and a pedestrian at around 7.40pm on Thursday.
