An 87-year-old woman escaped serious injury last night after she was hit by a car outside a hardware store in Hamilton.

A police spokesman said the injured woman was being treated for “non-life-threatening injuries” at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

An eyewitness said the woman was struck by a blue Mitsubishi Lancer near the Masters store on Dundonald Street at about 6pm.

The eyewitness added that the victim was conscious and talking when she was taken away in an ambulance.

Police said the road had been cleared and there were no delays to traffic.
