At least two fire engines and two ambulances were in attendance.

An ambulance spokeswoman said: "We were called at 11.40am to an incident involving a pedestrian who had been hit by a car.

"The woman, of unknown age, suffered serious multiple injuries.

"She was taken to Southend Hospital by land ambulance, accompanied by air ambulance critical care medics."

Looking at where the photo is taken, you can't or shouldn't be speeding at thatpoinpoint. Did the person step out with out looking or was the driver not looking. Can't blame anyone until the police have done there job.

I thought you learnt basic road safety from a young age. Obviously this woman didn't.

There may be no connection with speed of the car, but living local to this incident the speed some people drive around here is shocking. There needs to be a few unmarked police about one day.
Hope she makes a good recovery and the driver is prosecuted. Its not acceptable in a residential area.

You make yourself look a complete idiot with your stupid non factual remarks! There is no reason whatsoever to assume this lady was in the wrong so until you have the facts don't point the finger!

Can I just add. It was neither the speed of the car and the lady was just packing her shopping in her boot! It was an accident! I am still shaken and have not had to dial 999 in a long time.
I feel so deeply for the injured lady and wish her a pain free recovery. To see her so strong and brave while I told her help was on the way made me feel weak and vulnerable! Please have a heart and leave the family to get over the shock with no vile comments.
