A PENSIONER has died and a 22-year-old woman has been left with life-changing injuries after being hit by a car near a supermarket.

Police rushed to Morrisons in Totton after the incident, which involved a Peugeot 206, just before midday.

Paramedics initially said the pair suffered 'serious leg injuries' in the crash and were taken to University Hospital Southampton for treatment.

But this evening Hampshire Constabulary has confirmed that an 86-year-old woman from Chandler's Ford has died.

Her next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

The second pedestrian, a 22-year-old woman from Chandler's Ford, has been taken to Southampton General Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Peugeot, a 76-year-old woman from Totton, sustained minor injuries.

A spokesperson for South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS), said: "We received an emergency 999 call at 11.54 with the caller reporting that there had been a collision in Morrisons car park between a car and two adult female pedestrians.

"We sent three ambulances, a paramedic team leader in a rapid response vehicle and the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance to the scene.

"Both female pedestrians had sustained serious leg injuries and were taken by road to University Hospital Southampton (with members of the air ambulance team travelling in the ambulances with the two patients).

"The driver of the car was also taken to UHS for assessment and further treatment for minor injuries.

As well as paramedics, there was a heavy police presence following the incident.

A badly damaged red car can be seen next to the cashpoint which is also damaged.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting Operation Didlum.
