A CIRENCESTER mum who died after she was hit by a car while crossing a dual carriageway has been named as Susan MacKenzie.
The 59-year-old was attempting to cross the A429 between the Waitrose and Stroud Road roundabouts at around 5.50pm on Wednesday when she was struck by the black Audi A4.
She was taken to Swindon’s Great Western Hospital with major traumatic head and chest injuries but later died.
It is believed the mum-of-three had been crossing from a bus stop on the opposite side of the road.
The driver of the Audi, a 42-year-old woman from Wiltshire, along with two primary school-aged children who were also in the car, were not injured in the crash but were taken to Cirencester Hospital as a precaution.
The A429 was closed for around five hours while investigations were carried out.
Anyone with information is asked to call Gloucestershire police on 101, quoting incident number 313 of January 2.
