1:40pm Tuesday 5th November 2013 in Local news
A 90-year-old woman bus passenger has died following a road traffic incident on Beverley Rise, Ilkley, yesterday.
The incident happened at 1.25pm when a single decker bus was travelling along the road towards Grove Road / Hebers Grove.
At the same time a Renault Laguna was pulling out of the driveway of a residential property.
The bus then braked and a 90-year-old female passenger on the bus was thrown from her seat and collided with the inside front of the bus. She was left with head injuries and, it is believed, suffered a medical episode.
There was no collision between the bus or the Laguna.
The lady was taken to hospital but died a short time later.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to the incident or who saw either vehicle immediately before it.
Call the Major Collision and Enquiry Team on 101.
