An elderly woman was seriously injured when she was run down
in a Hamilton shopping centre car park today.
Hamilton police Senior Sergeant Dave Litton said emergency
services were called to the Horsham Downs Shopping Centre in
Rototuna about 10.20am.
"The matter is still under investigation but initial
indications an 87-year-old woman was walking across a
pedestrian crossing in the shopping centre car park when she
was struck down by a vehicle and had her leg run over."
She was seriously injured, he said.
The incident followed the deaths of two other elderly
pedestrians after being fatally struck in the Waikato this
year, Mr Litton said.
