Woman killed on Tesco forecourt

11 January, 2017

A fatal crash on a Tesco forecourt on Monday January 9 is being investigated by officers from Police Scotland.

At around 7.10am, a 68-year-old woman was walking on the forecourt of the Tesco filling station, Lanark Road, Carluke when she was struck by a DAF lorry which was being driven by a 42-year-old man.

Emergency services were called but the woman died at the scene. Relatives have been informed and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal. The 42-year-old man was unhurt but was left badly shaken.

Sergeant Stewart Dyer is appealing for witnesses to the crash. He said: “The crash occurred early in the morning but the forecourt was busy with motorists heading off to their commute, so I’d be keen to speak to anyone who was there to contact police.

“We understand from our enquiries that there were four vehicles on the forecourt at the time of the crash and I would like to trace these drivers as they may have information that could help with our enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sergeant Dyer via 101.
