Pensioner dies after she was hit by e-scooter  

A pensioner has died in hospital six days after she was hit by an e-scooter being ridden by a 14-year-old boy.

Linda Davis, 71, known to her family and friends as Lou, was struck on the pavement on Southwell Road East, in Rainworth, Nottinghamshire, at around 3.50pm on June 2.

She was rushed to hospital but died last Wednesday despite the efforts of medics.

The force said the investigation is ongoing and officers are appealing for any witnesses to get in touch while the victim’s family is being supported by specialist officers.

Detective Constable Emma Temple, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: ‘Our thoughts are with the victim’s family, who have requested privacy at this difficult time.

‘Our enquiries are ongoing and we’d urge anyone who either witnessed this collision, or who may have CCTV or dash-cam footage, to please get in touch with us.’

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 441 of June 2, or Crimestoppers anonymously on .
