A FEMALE pedestrian who was struck by a car in Crediton High Street earlier today, Wednesday, July 27, was flown to hospital by an air ambulance with potentially serious injuries.

The Mazda car came to rest backwards into the premises of Helmores estate agents, near Crediton Museum, at about 1pm.

The A377 through Crediton was closed as emergency services, including specialist rescue crews, cared for the woman who was described as “elderly”.

Screens were held around the woman and car as she was treated.

At about 2.30pm she was transferred by a land ambulance to an air ambulance to be taken to hospital.

The High Street partially re-opened to traffic at about 2.45pm.

Police still remain at the scene with the road partially closed but a recovery vehicle has just arrived to take the car away.

Accident investigation work was completed at the scene.

Helmores estate agents closed its office for the afternoon due to the serious collision outside its office.

Part of the Helmores window was smashed by the vehicle.
