The spokeswoman added: “The victim sustained a leg injury along with minor abrasions to her left knee and was taken to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for medical attention.

“The motor car involved was left with minor damage to the front end.”

The spokeswoman added: “The incident resulted in traffic delays for commuters travelling west on the North Shore Road.

“However normal traffic flow was restored after approximately 30 minutes.”
