A 79-YEAR-OLD woman who was seriously injured when she was hit by an electric scooter in a park in Madrid has died in hospital.
Paramedics who treated the elderly woman at the scene in the presence of the Madrid Municipal Police at the Cuña Verde Park in the Latina district of Madrid said that the accident occurred at around 1.55pm on Sunday, March 14 and that the rider of the electric scooter had fled the scene of the accident. This person has still not been located.
The woman, who sustained severe brain trauma and had to be intubated at the scene, was taken to the San Carlos University Hospital where she has sadly died.
